E-Tshwane Government App
The City has also developed an application (app) to provide additional avenues through technology for communities and stakeholders to participate in the consultation on the draft IDP and 2018/19 budget. The "Tshwane E-Government" is a citizen engagement app that is meant to foster participatory democracy, accountability and responsiveness (Batho Pele principles). Through this app, citizens and stakeholders can raise issues, provide input and influence the City's policies and strategies.
The app has been piloted and is available on the Google Play-store and the Apple i-tunes store. Residents and stakeholders can download the app on their smart devices and participate in the process.
