Several things have happened in the tech space this week and on the Techpoint Africa Podcast, we discussed some of them. First on the list is the launch of the Kenyan President's master plan that saw the introduction of coding into the curriculum of primary and secondary schools, with more projects to come.

Then we talked about the installation of Equiano cables in South Africa by the West Indian Ocean Cable Company (WIOCC) in partnership with Google, and what it means for the country and Africa.
