  1. About two years ago I was working on a project where this govt institution was changing its old ICT hardware, since I support also this NGO working with the disadvantaged and disabled i.e training them on how to use computers, etc. I asked the govt institution if they could donate the same equipment to the NGO, I was told they couldn’t because govt policy doesn’t allow for such, but instead it allows to decommission and give the equipment to an organization that can safely dispose of the same equipment. Several weeks later I found the equipment being sold at Soweto market.
    I don’t know why he thinks ICT experts should contribute, if the govt institutions are unable to.
