Senior Policy Advisor - Africa

Biography

I joined the Internet Society as Senior Policy Advisor for Africa. In this role I provide expert and policy advice to the several projects. I work very closely with the External and Community Engagement teams in improving and maintaining our relations with regional partners such as African Union Commission, Africa Telecommunications Union, and National and Sub-regional Regulatory authorities among others.

Before joining the Internet Society, I have been a part of Internet Society’s extended family for several years, leading the creation of the Internet Society's chapter in Zimbabwe and joining the Internet Society's delegation to the ITU’s WTSA as a chapter fellow. Over the years I worked as a “serial entrepreneur,” having launched several award-winning initiatives that leverage the Internet to reach key social goals, including climate change and blockchain.
