Hot on the heels of Informa cancelling last weeks East Africa Com event in Nairobi, the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) has announced it has postponed the Commonwealth Broadband Africa Forum, originally scheduled to take place in Nairobi, Kenya, in July.
The Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation and the Communications Commission of Kenya have agreed to postpone this event to November 2014. “We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and we look forward to welcoming all interested parties in Nairobi in November,” the CTO said in a statement.
Kenya has suffered from a number of bombings in recent weeks, with foreign security agencies warning against all but essential travel to certain areas of the country and highlighting the threat of terrorism from Somali militant group Al-Shabaab.
