While releasing the #DIAA2019 nominations, Innocent Kawooya, the CEO of HiPipo applauded the different individuals and organizations that took time and submitted entries befitting nomination in Africa’s most important digital and financial inclusion platform.
“Between June 6th and 10th July, we received several entry submissions from about 113 organizations and individuals. The advisory panel then scrutinized each submission to ensure conformity and adherence to the nomination criteria. Those that ticked all the boxes were shortlisted while those that were below par didn’t make the list,” Innocent Kawooya noted.
“There are 16 Uganda and six Continental Categories. This year the Commendation for Trade Digitization category has nominees and just like other categories it will have Jury/Research Panel assessment and public survey/vote to determine the eventual winner. Congratulations are in order for all #DIAA2019 nominees. He added.
