He continues: “eNCA is a highly respected news organisation, known for its real African stories and unbiased coverage. It is a perfect match and this landmark collaboration will take African Utility Week to a whole new level and enable us to reach so many more people who will be able to learn and engage about energy and water – scarce resources that impact each and every one of us.”
