First of all, the above article is prepared by a young journalist with limited knowledge in the region and the interview given by Mr Mohamed Ahmed Jama of Dalkom did not help. He was given more of a propoganda platform than professional who knows what he is talking about. This is evident as you read through the article especially when he talks about the ability of Dalkom to complete the connectivity of the backbone terresterial in Somalia if the Kenyan government takes the fibre nearer to the border. Technically such initiative is not feasible let alone the challenges associated with the instability of the region and perhaps it would have been better if he was more specific in talking about the radio microwave networks.
