By Amy Turner - Com Series Staff Writer, KNect365


Coming soon to the Com Series blog and YouTube channel.

Here's a sneak preview of our interview with Kakono's CTO, Owen Ruwodo.

We sat down with Owen at the launch of the bigger, better, bolder AfricaCom, where we chatted about his background and experience, as well as his connection to the African continent.

He discussed tech and telecommunications development in Africa, making connections and including all - truly bridging the gap and empowering young Africans to achieve more.

Owen also went on to talk about the telecommunications success in Africa and how job creation in the sectors of technology and telecommunications enriches all aspects of society - from healthcare and farming to retail and manufacturing.


Stay tuned for the full interview, coming to the channel soon.
