Just landed in Nairobi! I’m here to meet with entrepreneurs and developers, and to learn about mobile money — where Kenya is the world leader.

I’m starting at a place called iHub, where entrepreneurs can build and prototype their ideas. Two of the engineers I met — Fausto and Mark — designed a system to help people use mobile payments to buy small amounts of cooking gas, which is a lot safer and better for the environment than charcoal or kerosene. It’s inspiring to see how engineers here are using mobile money to build businesses and help their community.

Later he went for lunch at one of the famous place in Nairobi where he enjoyed one of Kenya’s special meals  with Joseph Mucheru, the Kenyan Cabinet Secretary of Information and Communications.

Its a nice privilege for the developers to come  air their view and concerns and also learn from the masters, we view this a big game changer in the African Market and the IT world.
