  1. what did each do, particularly the individuals. would be nice if you shared the exact achievements. Companies like Econet and NetOne or individuals like Douglas Mboweni are easy to identify by association or popularity of their companies. but the others…?

  2. Please may you put the runners up for the awards.We also havent seen any news article in the papers pertaining to this

  3. I thot Kubatana would win the Top ICT Civil Society/NGO award. I also think this awards programme should be expanded to include bloggers.

  4. some of those people we worked forthem and have done totaly nothing (literaly except owe people) since we left them for the last two years….

  5. these awards somehow i feel they do not really recognize the real achievers in the ict industry and it becomes very boring when the same people are the ones winning the awards so officially i dont recognize the winners yet
