Kenya Wins Bid To Host 2024 Transform Africa Summit.


Kenya was chosen to host the esteemed Transform Africa Summit (TAS-24) in 2024 on Tuesday.

The news was made public by Smart Africa, the co-ordinating secretariat for ICT programs and activities for the African Continent during the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain.

ICT CS, Eliud Owalo who was president, expressed his happiness, pointing out that the win confirms Kenya’s position as a regional leader in advancing the transformative impact of ICTs on socioeconomic development and as a powerhouse in ICTs, strengthened by President William Ruto’s transformational leadership.

“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,” said Owalo.

Kenya’s determination to win the hosting rights and present the country’s capabilities to the world was evident when the Communication Authority opened the summit bidding process in November of last year.

Every year, the Smart Africa Alliance hosts the Transform Africa Summit, which is the premier continental gathering place for international and regional ICT leaders from business, government, and international organizations.

The goal of this partnership is to investigate novel strategies for directing, propelling, and maintaining Africa’s growing digital revolution.

This year’s Transform Africa Summit is slated to be in Nairobi on August 28–30.

ITU Secretary General Doreen Bogdan-Martin and African Union Commissioner Dr. Amani Abu-Zeid, who oversees infrastructure, energy, and digitization, were present at the ceremony in Spain.

ICT ministers from a number of African nations, including Zimbabwe, Ghana, Madagascar, Gabon, Rwanda, and Burundi, as well as Communications Authority chairperson Mary Wambui and DG David Mugonyi were also in attendance.
