Ethiopia get ready... Lee Kasumba will be landing there soon

Lee Kasumba is heading to the Horn of Africa in her Africa Connected journey.

702 and Standard Bank's Africa Connected sent Kasumba across Africa to discover just how easy it is to do business on the continent and to gain insights into Africa's markets.

Kasumba says Ethiopia has been one of her dream destinations.

I'm so happy to find out about the culture, business innovations and what's really going on in the country as a whole.

Lee Kasumba, Radio and TV presenter broadcaster

Ethiopia was sworn in its prime minister Abiy Ahmed in Apil 2018.

What I really like about what has been happening since his swearing in is that he has really implemented a lot of reforms.
