Founder, Albert Mucunguzi, noted that the difficulty of getting good original content is the the current challenge facing the company.

“Content is very expensive. And unfortunately for our economy at the moment, publishers don’t quite get as much money as would be needed to pay writers what they’re worth,” he noted.

“The launch of PC Tech Reviews is a step in the right direction. We have put in place a dedicated team of reviewers who will work overtime to fill the site with professional reviews over the coming weeks.”

“Hopefully, such initiatives will help shape the future of our industry,” he added.

In 2010, a partnership with Ghana’s Pearl Richards’ Foundation lead to the launch of the magazine in the country. PC Tech has since established further strategic partnerships with organizations across the continent including Umuntu Media (South Africa), Ibadan University (Nigeria), Makerere University Business School (Uganda), Uganda Goes Online (UGO) and Informa Telecoms & Media (South Africa/UK).

PC Tech has also organized, and/or hosted events in Uganda and Ghana, including the Africa Internet Entrepreneurs Conference (Kampala) and the Africa Digital Week (Accra, Ghana).

The launch of PC Tech Reviews offers readers an opportunity to read technical insights about gadgets and software before they can use them.
