The Department of Communications says through the use of social media government is able to interact with citizens even in the deep rural areas.
The Director of Social Media at the Department of Communication, Aslam Levy, says social media is easily accessible, affordable and also gives the public the opportunity to respond and voice their concerns.
“I think also something interesting to note is that what we are saying about social media is not that we will only be communicating via social media. What we're saying is that we do offer print publication, newspapers,” explains Aslam.
