Wiki Indaba was a gathering of African Wikimedians and Open Source
Advocates. The convention sought to realize, analyze and address situations
peculiar to the continent while churning ideas for the future of Wikimedia
projects on the continent. There was a representation from 10 countries
spanning the entire regions on the continent. Ghana, Nigeria and Cote
Divoire, Cameroon, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Tanzania, Egypt and Tunisia and
South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Malawi represented the Western,
Central, Eastern, Northern and Southern African Regions respectively. There
was also a representation from the Wikimedia Foundation and other countries
such as Iran, France and Italy, resulting in a total of about 35
participants at the conference.
The general focus for the first day was to introduce and acquaint ourselves
with the other participants while each country presented challenges and
success stories that pertained to their specific countries. In the evening
we had dinner at the House of Baobab. The restaurant had delicacies
sprawling the entire African continent. The flagship jollof and bissap
juice (popularly known in Ghana as sobolo) from the West African Region
were served. Not forgetting the fried plantain with tomato sauce that was
served as a starter.
Day 2 started with great enthusiasm as we were gaining into the main agenda
for the convention. Sectional meetings were hosted, ideas presented and
trainings on more specific related programs. Success stories, suggestions
and further education were done in these sessions. The day wouldn’t have
been any better without the excellent film show on copyright by the
creative commons team at the Jozi Hub. It was great insight to Wikimedians,
artists and producers who were present.
Day three was result oriented. The focus was on addressing the many
concerns that were raised and drawing conclusions on the way forward. This
was facilitated through allotment of groups which were tasked to solve or
perhaps provide solutions to topics or issues that were deemed essential to
the gathering. Day 3 was doleful as many were just not in the mood to come
to a close to the summit I dubbed, “the gathering of the world’s most
Generally I will say it was an event worth attending and hope it hosts more
Africans next year so as to increase the pool of knowledge and ideas that
will be shared.
