Something that KICTAnet prides itself in is seeing its Kenya School of
Internet Governance  (KeSiG) Fellows
thrive and enrich the internet governance discourse.

*KeSIG <https://kigf.or.ke/kesig/> is an introductory course covering
technical, economic, legal and contemporary social issues brought about by
the Internet and how they affect Kenyan decision making. It aims to build a
critical mass of individuals advocating for Internet rights and freedoms
through equipping the participants with the skills needed to participate
meaningfully in local, regional and global policy discourse. It has been
held annually since 2016. *

Peter Mmbando, KeSIG and KeIGF Fellow 2020, from Tanzania, has written a
paper "*The Shortfalls of and Probable Solutions for Data Governance in
East Africa"* He argues that in East Africa, we need an infrastructure that
is sufficient where data storage is managed on its own to reduce dependency
and the need for capacity building through increased literacy on digital
rights.  *Link * https://bit.ly/3sAPUJl
