AfricaCom recently landed in Joburg for the launch of the bigger, better, bolder 2016 event.

The launch in Rosebank saw some of AfricaCom’s most prominent community members come together to discuss digital connectivity across the region, including a panel discussion themed: “Connecting Africa - Economic development and social empowerment through digital connectivity”.

The panel included: Luke McKend (MD at Google SA), Riaan Graham (Director of Sub-Saharan Africa at Ruckus Wireless) and Bora Varliyagci (Head of African Digital Infrastructure at Mott MacDonald), and was facilitated by Duncan McLeod, editor of TechCentral.
