Burundi (137th) and Chad (138th) were the worst ranked of all countries on the list.
Rwanda, which probably would have fared pretty well within Sub-Saharan Africa, was not ranked. This is rather strange since Rwanda’s ICT efforts are mentioned in the report. Moreover, Rwanda’s government has set the country on a fast-lane to technology growth.
The ranking holds some surprises. The Gambia and Senegal rank higher than Kenya even though Kenya did rise 9 places since the 2010 report. Hmmm. How much did The Gambian and Senegalese governments pay? 🙂
Here are the rankings of Sub-Saharan African countries
|Kenya||81||up 9 spots since 2010|
|Namibia||82||up 7 spots since 2010|
|Malawi||105||up 14 since 2010|
|Mozambique||106||up 10 since 2010|
|Uganda||107||up 8 since 2010|
