Editor,

THE MISS Geek Rwanda contest could potentially help unlock the full potential of Rwandan women in the field of technology. 

What should follow is to make sure that those promising projects don’t find their way into ‘ghost’ applications that will never see the light of day. kLab and other concerned institutions should help groom these young women into great innovators and entrepreneurs.

As it was observed at the just-concluded 11th National Leadership Retreat, we should avoid ‘ghost’ projects and instead strive to finalise the stalled ones at the same time. It is in the same spirit that I call on Miss Geek Rwanda 2014 Nancy Sibo, the developer of an exciting ‘mobile cow’ app, to do everything possible to make the project a reality. 

If we dream of something revolutionary like this, let’s always endevour to make it a reality.

Dan Rumanzi, Rwanda
