KENYA is RISING

Am sitting in my hotel lobby after a long day of work in Joburg, trying to eat some dinner whiles i deal with e-mail backlog on my laptop…..:-)

A friend walks in as he had promised to deliver a copy of the latest edition of the Computer and Communication Africa (CCA) magazine published by AITEC and Multimedia Group online @ http://new.aitecafrica.com/node/11 – with hardcopy.

You must be proud of yourselves, Kenyan was my immediate post to the KICTANET list – i just got a copy of the last edition of CCA for 2006 and the lead story is “Kenya’s drive to become ICT powerhouse” and much more on Kenya.

While i have being familiar with the momentum there i was amazed when i read the stories about the pace of engagement. In some ways this confirms my believe that Africa has pockets of excellence but what we need is SPEED to SCALE and definately you guys are on a FASTRACK. We are with you and i want to personally congratulate the level of engagement from the various constituencies and not belittling the others by singling out the exemplary leadership of the PS, Dr. Ndemo and Hon. Minister, Mutahi Kagwe.

Thanks to AITEC for throwing the spotlight @ http://new.aitecafrica.com/ and not to promote AITEC but i think we should all get copies of the hardprint….:-)

Go Kenya.
