SANGONeT's second annual "ICTs for Civil Society" Conference and Exhibition drew to a close on Thursday, with many delegates expressing their enthusiasm for this event and requesting that it become a regular feature in the annual SA NGO calender.
Thanks to the efforts of the Highway Africa News team, we were able to provide a daily newspaper to all conference delegates. For those who were unable to obtain a hardcopy, an electronic version of each issue of the Lwati conference newspaper can be downloaded in pdf format.
Day 1 - Lwati (PDF 778 Kb)

Day Three - Lwati (PDF 1.13 Mb)
Lwati - Final Edition (PDF 1.83 Mb)
There is also a streaming media file for anyone with Internet Explorer and sufficient bandwidth who would like to view the speech of the Deputy Minister of the Department of Communications, Roy Padayachie, wherein he exhorted South African NGO's to be more assertive. Those who were unable to attend will find a wealth of additional newsworthy information already posted on the SANGONeT Conference website.
Photos from the conference can also be viewed via the online photo gallery at the 2006 SANGONeT Conference website
Here's looking forward to seeing everyone again at the 2007 conference!
