iAfrikan

iAFRIKAN is an independent technology (Information & Communications Techology - ICT) analysis, news and reviews site. We focus mainly on technology content relating to Africa and believe that technology stories and knowledge from Africa are best narrated by those in the trenches, working daily in the technology industry on the continent. The team is led by Tefo Mohapi and comprises some of the top technically competent professionals on the continent. We launched iAFRIKAN on March 4, 2014 and prior to that announced the publishing of our anual Technology in Africa - 2014 Digest on February 6, 2014. More reports, publications, digital products, events and conferences are planned and in the pipeline.
