The ICT industry has been characterized by revolutionary growth over the last twenty years and it is projected that the USA will over the next twenty years begin to experience substantial short fall of labour in the ICT sector. Already, India and China have led in the take over of jobs from Europe and America, and Africa is rapidly catching on.

In Kenya, it is estimated that by the year 2017 the country’s ICT industry will be contributing up to 25% of GDP at USD 2 billion, and have created over 500 new tier-1 ICT companies, employing over 50,000.
