PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa will on Wednesday officiate at an ICT convention which is expected to attract over 500 participants from several African countries and the ICT world.
Primary and Secondary Education Minister Paul Mavima told Tuesday’s Herald newspaper that the two-day Innovation Africa Summit would be hosted by his ministry, that of higher education and two private companies, one of which is based in the United Kingdom.
He said ministers from 17 African countries and 45 international companies such as Microsoft, Intel, JP Canon, among others had confirmed their attendance.
“We are glad the summit is being held here in Zimbabwe and is taking place within the context of the Second Republic, under which the government and the nation are working towards restoration of our country to its legitimate glory,” he said.
“We have the highest potential in Africa for a human capital pipeline that will justify the location of their headquarters for the African region in Zimbabwe,” he said.
He added that the summit was being held at a time the Zimbabwean government was working towards aligning the education sector with the requirements of the 21st century.
