The Ministry of Information has embarked on preparations to host the Connected Africa Summit in April next year, an event CS Eliud Owalo says will be an opportunity to share ideas as a continent.

Speaking yesterday during the Post Connected Summit Breakfast, CS Owalo reaffirmed his ministry’s support of the event and indicated it was timely and historic for the continent’s digital partnerships, integration, and development.

“We were here basically to embark on preparations for the Connected Africa Summit 2024 which we want to host as a country. That will give us an opportunity to showcase the milestones that we have realised in the digital space as a country.

The Connected Summit 2024 will be an opportunity to share ideas as a continent. The Summit will further create a learning platform for Africa in the technology space so that we learn from each other and also embrace the best-case scenarios.” said the CS.

The CS noted that borrowing from the subsequent Connected Summit deliberations, the private and public sectors, through partnerships, have managed to fully onboard 9,700 government services on the e-citizen services.

He also revealed that the Ministry is training youth through the Jitume and Ajira program and will augment the Connected Africa Summit 2024 goals.
