Under the auspices of South Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, I was invited to visit the East Asian country last week by the Korea-Africa foundation to discuss and engage on sustainable ways to build a stronger Korea-Africa relationship, which was established last year.
This past weekend, the annual Geekulcha hackathon (GKHack19) took place at 22 on Sloane startup campus. Led by Mixo Ngoveni, it focuses on boosting and sustaining a strong geek culture in South Africa.
