Represented by the Kwathu Kollective Managing Director, Ms. Rhoda Kamwaza, we were among the organizations that participated in the Afrilabs Malawi City Meetup event held at Mhub in Lilongwe. The event, hosted by Mzuzu EHub in partnership with AfrilLabs, brought together industry professionals, tech enthusiasts, and innovators to share knowledge, network, and explore the latest trends in technology and innovation.
