My 1st hustle in early 2000 was called Sifa Systems at Uganda House, Kenyatta avenue. Mama Rachel was one of my favourite customers. She would call me to install antivirus and do maintenance for her small tour company. She was and is pleasant and kind. A lovely person indeed. https://t.co/cYucNgFIOy

I thought the Model 3 was impressive until @charlythuo gave me a demo of two of his favourite cars that he worked on while he was an engineer at @Tesla and @Rivian. My mind is ๐Ÿคฏ! I canโ€™t even call them cars, feels offensive to call them cars.

If you are wondering why education needs to be disrupted in Africa. This is very common in public schools. Abuse, not discipline. https://t.co/8HGchSgPpd

Is it just in my head or does being in this country make a black person feel they have to prove theyโ€™re not dangerous. It is the small thingsโ€ฆ - The side glance + attempt at a disarming smile. - The โ€œIโ€™m not just giving you way, Iโ€™m creating distance + the smileโ€ โ€ฆ etc

My Uber turned out to be a Tesla Model 3. I have never been inside one before. I didnโ€™t expect more than I had read online, but I was wrong! Only one word to describe a Tesla for me, a newbie. Love. A product made out of LOVE. We are living the future!!

If they can find a way to work together, my hope in this country will grow by 300%. I donโ€™t know a more committed CS to the job than Fred. If he is not in the next cabinet, we will all feel the pain significantly if his successor reverses just a 1/5 of his achievements.

Three lessons for early-stage startup founders. 1. It's not about the startup. It's about the founder. Don't overthink. Get sh*t done.๐Ÿฅท 2. If you are short on your runway.

This is important to many who keep saying, โ€œwe turned out okโ€. Realising we didnโ€™t turn out ok is the first step towards healing and growth. A litmus test.

@SamGichuru @KidatoSchool Other way to look at this is home/office/public Wi-Fi broadband access vs mobile (4G+) data penetration. A factor in urban vs rural access options. In short, would be nice (and more competitive) if we had more widespread Wi-Fi hotpots outside of hotels, workspace/hubs etc...

SO THE REASON TEACHERS ARE SO UNDERPAID IS BECAUSE 76% OF TEACHERS ARE WOMEN AND SOCIETY DOES NOT VALUE THE WORK OF WOMEN, WHICH IS ALSO WHY MANY MALE TEACHERS BECOME ADMIN. IRONICALLY, 76% OF SUPERINTENDENTS ARE MEN BECAUSE MEN MAKE UP THE MAJORITY OF ADMIN.
