  1. Well it’s better than nothing. Now let’s just get them some cell towers and cell phones. Technology, the only ture great equalizer.

  2. Maybe they mean that Uganda benefits from the undersea cable making it to Kenya, and through Kenya they get their cable access.

  3. Cooper – Ghana, where one of my ex colleauges is from, has had mobile phones and accompanying masts for years.
    Its still rather corrupt though as he will admit.
