The recent KM4DEV space in Geneva was inspiring and very educative.
I thank most sincerely the HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation and other technical people who volunteered for their technical support b and success of the event. We will continue to refer and use the knowledge shared in this conference for sometime to come.
I will continue to encourage my colleagues from the south of fhe globe, mainly in Africa to forge partnerships in the area of KM4DEV and in areas that may have positive impact to the lives of the people.

We are delighted that some of the restrictions, lock-downs in many of the countries are being relaxed, particularly in Africa. We trust that we are to unite and ensure that we help to work with our governments to eradicate this pandemic. It will not be easy but with the help of the WHO and several international health agencies and private sector, we will find vaccine for COVID 19. Let the Knowledge management practices,tools and strategies take a center stage in supporting businesses during this pandemic.
I am glad to know and share that knowledge management is becoming a reliable tool for making our organisations and companies successful in business and development.
I am glad to learn that Knowledge City Uganda and Kenya are up and running. I am glad to let you know that Knowledge city Zambia and southern Africa will up soon early 2019.

I am passionate on how we can improve harnessing African indigenous knowledge within the rural communities. I note that there is still a lot of undocumented knowledge mainly within our traditions and culture, farming practices etc.
How can we improve the storage of this knowledge that is almost fading away within our African societies,
Can Someone help?
I am glad the African community in this network appreciates and sees a value in belongig to the community.
I have just seen a national ICT survey copy for 2015 for Zambia. A very intresting postion we have in terms of access and utilisation of ICTs in the country. We are still moving at a slow pace really.
Do we have completed national ICT surveys in other countries in SADC region? If so, can someone send me a copy?
That's a good point tumediso, thanks so much
Thank you Mada..for these people to open up i think they have to know the importance of sharing knowledge, just being taught how fundamental it is to share what they have, not all can do that but im sure with being told the importance many of them can come out of their shells and share their knowledge.
Tumediso i concur with you, but there are some people who have vital knowledge that they can share to the world but they keep it to themselves, is there a way you can make these people to open up to share their knowledge to others?
True that Mada...not everything can be shared, but i believe those who have knowledge about vital things can always share if they are given the platform.
Sometimes knowing how much to share and how much to keep is what hindering us because its not everything that you need to share and at the same time not everything that you need to keep. Moreover, Making everything secret is self-defeating and also prevents someone from benefiting from your knowledge, as it say sharing is caring
