We are relieved and happy to report that our Editor in Chief, Rebecca Enonchong is FREE! We posted an article yesterday about the genesis of the matter, but in a nutshell, she was illegally detained and in the custody of the Government in Douala, Cameroon for three days and nights. The Tech Guru posted on Twitter about her release.
CNN reports that Enonchong is one of Africa’s most influential tech entrepreneurs and sits on the boards of many global corporations including the WHO Foundation. Her arrest sparked outrage on social media with many prominent individuals, including the French Ambassador to Cameroon, calling for her release.
We would like to thank all who signed the petition, took to the social media streets, and any other effort to demand her freedom. United we stand!
