Pope: Internet is a ‘gift from God’ for dialogue

By | January 24, 2014

The Internet is a “gift from God” that facilitates communication, Pope Francis said in a statement. I fully agree with Pope (ngiyavumelana naye uPope Francis)

His Holiness Pope Francis fully understands that internet has become a part of every day life and offers a variety of benefits to everyone who is willing to use it.

I wonder if the leaders at Davos 2014 talkshow really understand the power of THE INTERNET, I believe they DO? And it’s potential opportunities to boost economic fortunes by creating a pool of entrepreneurs who in turn will create jobs, especially here in Africa.

The Internet can be used as a catalyst for job creation (in Africa). However, in Africa there are a whole host of problems. We are still to deal with very expensive internet access.

Telecommunication Infrastructure investments are necessary in Africa, to improve Internet access services experience for users in Africa.

African leaders need to focus more on how to address the “time bomb” of youth unemployment across the Africa continent. Leaders need a bit of empathy to youth issues, and willing to listen, acknowledge and work with us to solve those unemployment challenges.

We believe that technology can play a significant role, in creating much needed jobs and the BIG question is HOW?

We can harness the power of technology to make a real difference in people’s lives.

I will provide practical examples in a form of howtos…
