The Computer Society of Zambia bill (the document)

We have read about the the existence of this bill which was apparently presented to the politicians as far back as 2007, and so when we got hold of a 2012 draft, we thought we would share it here. ¬†The bill basically establishes the Computer Society of Zambia as law. The society itself has existed for a while, but this will make it possible to “establish,¬†enforce and regulate codes of conduct and professional standards for the country’s ICT sector.”

Here’s a link to the document.

We’ll be following this up to see what’s held it up so far, and if there’s any hope for it at all. Aside, we’d really prefer if they call it the “ICT Society of Zambia” or something close that doesn’t so PC era the way “computer” does.
