KASS International Media broadcasts "Yes2dotAfrica" campaign. "Pregnant with .africa", said Sophia
KASS Media spoke to Sophia Bekele on DCA's accomplishments and “Yes2dotAfrica” campaign to put Africa in the digital map.
She responded on the potential of ICT in bridging the poverty margin giving the example of the mobile power transfer powered by internet, the great advantage that African continent would derive if they adopted the .africa domain which is the main project of DotConnectAfrica that borders on unity, identity and more so, as a brand.
About Africa's rating globally ICTwise, Sophia reiterated that Africa was fast gaining much pace catching on the latest technology which was a good indicator of development;
ICT will also bridge the language gap by having online availability of all native languages, globalized by internet as well as having internationalized domain names (IDNs) which allow languages to be accessed the same and so further makes the globe smaller. "KASS radio for eg. is doing the same here in Kenya, broadcasting in one of the largest local languages", said Sophia "to reach its constituencies"
When Kass asked, what else is for Sophia, "currently I am pregnant with .africa and until that baby is born, I cannot do much of other things", said Sophia.
Sophia concluded asking for support to the listeners to say “yes” to the dotafrica campaign.
