Sabine Dall’Omo, CEO of Siemens Southern and Eastern Africa said in an official statement. The company’s newest investments will go towards aiding the development of locally engineered solutions. “In an African context, disruptive technology can be seen as an opportunity to leapfrog into the best and most advanced technologies, but this is only possible with access to the right training and equipment.” Dall’Omo was quoted saying.
