Zimbabwe ICT Strategic Plan (2010-2014) Launch

We attended the launch of the ICT strategic plan yesterday. An overview of the the strategic plan; what went into it, how it was developed and how it is going to be implemented (and monitored) was given by the permanent secretary of the ministry, Eng. Kundishora.

Unfortunately there were no copies of the strategic plan for the audience to take home, but we’ll lay our hands on one in good time and post it here. Click back here in a few hours.

Two Zimbabwean ICT companies, Afrosoft and Secure Dynamics, were honored at the event for receiving awards at last year’s ForgeAhead ‘African ICT Achievers Awards’ in South Africa. Afrosoft received the ‘Top ICT Company’  and ‘Top ICT Most Innovative Company’ awards. Secure Dynamics the ‘Top ICT SMME’. A local chapter of the annual awards was launched yesterday .

Some photos from the event.
