In line with the Constitution, he said that 80 per cent of the technical staff in the ministry had been deployed to the counties to develop sports.

Additionally, he said that 24 per cent of cultural staff had also been sent to the counties.

He said his ministry would ensure that all libraries, including the Kenya National Library Services in Upper Hill were digitised to make them e-libraries. An e-learning pilot programme was already underway in Kibera, he said.
