As the official media partner of Africa Energy Indaba, Kaya FM will support the fifth annual Africa Energy Indaba (AEI), the continent's premier energy event, endorsed by the South Africa National Energy Association, the World Energy Council and supported by the African Union and the NEPAD Planning & Coordinating Agency.
Africa is described as the fastest urbanising continent in the world and must provide enough energy to meet its annual urban growth rate, which is twice as high as that of Asia and Latin America. Africa, as home to the poorest of the poor, must innovate energy solutions for 50% of the world's impoverished that live here in order to meet its enormous growth potential for the future.
Liz Hart, MD of the Africa Energy Indaba, says, "We welcome the opportunity to work with Kaya FM as it shares our vision for a prosperous Africa that can achieve sustainable solutions for our continent in the energy space. It is committed to informing South Africans about tomorrow's growth opportunities in Africa, including the exciting energy sector."
New business opportunities
Kaya FM MD, Greg Maloka agrees, "Our partnership affords our "Afripolitan" listeners opportunities to engage in the debate on Africa's energy future from a uniquely African perspective, whilst exploring and optimising new business opportunities on their home ground."
The station defines Afripolitan, as a mature, sophisticated, socially conscious individual rooted in heritage, a progressive thought leader described as a self-determining, discerning individual who is well informed and a player in the global environment.
