In his acceptance speech, CS Owalo noted that the victory underscores Kenya’s standing as an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) powerhouse and a regional leader in driving the transformative impact of ICTs on socio-economic development.

“This win is a testament to the confidence that the Smart Africa Alliance places in Kenya and its leadership. It solidifies our Nation’s tradition as a home for high-profile international conferences, an ICT investment destination of choice and highlights Kenya’s commitment to advancing the Digital Agenda in Africa.”

The Transform Africa Summit, organised annually by the Smart Africa Alliance, is the foremost continental forum uniting global and regional ICT leaders from government, business and international organizations.

The collaboration aims to explore innovative approaches to shaping, accelerating and sustaining Africa’s ongoing digital revolution.

The bidding process, initiated in November last year, through the Communication Authority, reflected Kenya’s determination to secure the hosting rights and showcase the Nation’s capabilities on a global stage.
