VoxAfrica TV on Africa, ICT and aid

VoxAfricaLast week I was contacted by the Production Co-Ordinator at VoxAfrica TV, a Pan African, bilingual, independent TV channel which broadcasts throughout the African continent via satellite. Following Michael Joseph’s recent comments that mobile technology has had a greater impact on Africa’s development than international aid, the producers were keen to explore the state of ICT across the continent, and I was invited to take part in a live broadcast with another guest, Tunde Adebayo, on Sunday evening.

The one hour programme – “Shoot the Messenger” – was hosted by Henry Bonsu, and features appearances from Tim Unwin (Royal Holloway), James Mbugua (Radio Africa), Samuel Burke (Hearts to Africa) and MariĆ©me Jamme (SpotOne Global Solutions Group and Africa Gathering).

The video is also available on the VoxAfrica TV website.

Are ICTs more effective than aid? VoxAfrica TV takes a look with @TimUnwin @kiwanja @Mjamme and others. http://is.gd/2liLu

hey ken – fabulous overview of the field, the issues and challenges, discussions and opinions around mobiles, ICT, etc. etc. i can’t remember the last time i actually watched something longer than about 3 minutes and i saw this one all the way through :-) . is it possible to download or get on DVD to use as a training tool in places that don’t have speedy internet?

@linda – Hi Linda! Glad you enjoyed it – it was fun to take part. I’ll ask the producers if it’s going to be available for download, but if probably won’t be for at least a week (they repeat it on air for the next few days)

If anyone wants to download the programme, the file is around 250Mb and can be downloaded from the VoxAfrica website (use the video link at the bottom of my post to get there), and then by clicking the small icon along the bottom of the video screen, to the right of where the total playing time is displayed (you’ll figure it out!)
