Perhaps the greatest amusement of many would be how South Sudan would grow to be a great technology hub in the East African region after series of political instability witnessed in the past, creating a hostile environment for technological enhancements. But that should not the case anymore, thanks to Mading Roben Maluk, an IT and Telecom specialist from South Sudan, currently based in Kampala, Uganda.
