Facebook CEO, Zuberberg lands in Nairobi, visits Kenyan iHub

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Facebook, Mr Mark Zuckerberg left Nigerian Wednesday for Kenya to visit the iHub technology hub in Nairobi, the nation’s capital, reports ITRealms.

He is also expected to meet with developers and partners, and explore how the country’s pioneering mobile money ecosystem is evolving.

Zuckerberg visit to Kenya forms part of the second leg of his first-ever African visit which commenced with Nigeria early this week.

He looked forward to learn more about what mobile entrepreneurs are doing with the latest technologies, and find out how Facebook could better support small businesses, developers and content creators across growing markets.

The CEO, ITRealms gathered, was particularly excited to see how mobile money and social media are driving commerce in the region and creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs and communities.

One of Zuckerberg’s first stops on the trip was iHub, an Innovation hub and hacker space started in March 2010 by TED fellow and entrepreneur, Eric Hersman.
