The information and communications technology (ICT) sector is the success story of the decade in Kenya. New information technologies are playing an increasingly important role in nearly all areas of the economy. The installation of a broadband-backbone connected to three under-sea fibre-optic cables (Seacom, TEAM System and EASSY) has significantly improved Kenya’s connectivity and its ICT prospects, be it in business-process outsourcing (BPO) or the development of IT-enabled services (ITeS).

The Government has identified ICT as a key enabler in attaining the goals and aspirations of Vision 2030, with the vision to transform Kenya into a knowledge and information-based economy through providing quality, affordable and reliable ICT services.

Pope Francis to Visit Kenya in First Ever Trip to Africa

Pope Francis will visit Kenya from 25 – 27 November in his first ever trip to Africa. Nairobi will be his first stop on a three-state visit of the continent to include Uganda and the Central African Republic.

The Catholic community in Kenya accounts for an estimated 33 percent of the population. While in Nairobi, Pope Francis will hold a Mass on the campus of the University of Nairobi which is expected to be attended by 1.4 million people from across the country.

The Pope will also meet other religious leaders to discuss inclusivity and how people of all denominations can co-exist. Key discussions will include matters around climate change, strengthening family ties, and inter-ethnic tolerance.

It has been 20 years since Kenya hosted a pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church which was marked by the visit of Pope John Paul II in 1995. The nation is prepared to welcome Pope Francis with blessings and joy.
