Mark Zuckerberg in Nairobi to meet tech entrepreneurs and developers

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is in Kenya after a three-day visit in Lagos, Nigeria in his first visit to Africa.

While in Nigeria, Mark Zuckerberg visited a ‘Summer of Code Camp’ at the Co-Creation Hub (CcHub) in Yaba and Andela – a business that recruits the most talented technologists in Africa and shapes them into world-class developers through a four-year technical leadership program.

Zuckerberg is expected to meet tech entrepreneurs, developers and talk to stakeholders in the ICT industry and listen and take ideas on how Facebook can better support tech development and entrepreneurship across Africa.


He went to meet the techies and entrepreneurs at the iHub.

During his visit, his first stop was at the popular fish joint Mama Oliech on Marcus Garvey road accompanied by Kenya ICT CS Joe Mucheru discussing internet access and his ambitious plans for connecting everyone in Kenya.

His off-road itinerary, which has been kept under wraps, is in line with his program in Nigeria where he was seen jogging across the Ikoyi Bridge and walking in the streets of Lagos.
