Kenya’s tourism sector is set to receive a boost from Uganda start-up company, Dei Technologies just launched from Nairobi, through its social networking platform dubbed Dei places.

First introduced last year, Dei places will allow subscribers to create and share places and memories with friends and families across the globe.

The Ugandan based platform also aims to be beneficial to Africa tourism and travel stakeholders, as they can market their products, tour spots and activities via the platform.

It targets individuals, and organizations among other entities sharing information in pictures, videos and words about places.

“Thereare over a billion places across the continent worth visiting but people do not know about them. Dei places is now here to help us market such places to the world. If well embraced, I am certain we will increase Kenyan local tourism by over 20 per cent,” said Paul Bamutaze, said the platform’s Business Development Manager.
