The African Press Organization (APO) today announced that Biztechafrica's Botswana Bureau Chief, John Churu, has won the APO invitation to participate in the AfricaCom 2012, the premier Pan-African communications event, taking place in Cape Town, South Africa, from 13 to 15 November 2012.
APO will offer transport, accommodation and perdiem for Churu to travel to Cape Town and cover the entire event.
For almost three years, Churu has been Botswana Bureau Chief for Biztechafrica.com and has written extensively on ICT issues.
“We are delighted for John and hope that this experience at the AfricaCom 2012 will benefit not only him, but also Biztechafrica.com and its readers”, said Eloïne Barry, APO Executive Director.
Biztechafrica.com publisher Tamer El-Assi said the recognition is well-deserved. “We have made a concerted effort to retain the services of some of Africa’s best ICT journalists, and John is no exception,” he said.
