Kenya IGF Online Discussion Day 4 : Emerging Technological trends

Good point Wangari Kabiru,
The conversations in Kenya turned to, “you don’t need education” to be
successful.We compromised the quality of research and education and now we
are turning into “blue collar jobs”.Slowly foreigners are taking over
construction, railways and lucrative CEO and upper management positions.If
we are not careful the current SGR railway story is just the beginning of
our problems.We will slowly sink into the quick sand of neocolonialism.

Regards,
Carol
