Africa Connected

Nikiwe Bikitsha heads to Uganda's Kampala (and she needs your ideas!)

As part of Africa Connected with Standard Bank, acclaimed finance journalist Nikiwe Bikitsha is off to Uganda.

Bikitsha says she has no preconceived notions about that country's economy, and looks forward to the being surprised at what she finds - as has been the case with the other countries she has visited as part of the Africa Connected campaign.

Nikiwe will spend just under 72 hours in Kampala, so has invited listeners to tweet their suggestions of highlight places that she must visit on #AfricaConnected.
