Abstrakt

African countries , from the African Information Society Initiative forum of 1995, have been working on facilitating a centralized e-government initiative. The system of implementing e-government services road map handed down by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa to African countries has been the inspiration for the institutional and operational reforms driving e-government in Africa. This paper, using the Institutional theory explores the challenges of introducing these new e-government, institutional culture into an already existing cultural relationship between African governments and ICTs. The paper adopts a qualitative approach in the data collection and analysis. This paper concludes that a successful western e-government structure can only succeed, if deliberate measures are taken to make sure the new institution harmonizes with the existing institutional culture and norms.
