#CitiTrends S02 Ep 24: Monitoring trends in Ghana’s 2016 elections

votingIt is a few days to the general election in Ghana and the atmosphere is charging up. There is however a very tech side to all the elections so we decided to explore that on the show.

A group in collaboration with the Electoral Commission and National Elections Security Task Force, is deploying an early warning system powered by a social media tracking centre for the elections. Programmes Director at Penplusbytes, Jerry Sam was my guest on the show.

We talk about how and why Cameroon’s government has labelled social media as a dangerous tool plus more in the Trending segment of the show with Ammishaddai Ofori.

Jeffrey Owuraku Sarpong also says he has a way of making your phone even more fun and exciting to use in the Apps segment of the show.

Enjoy.
