A Mombasa teenager has stunned many with an innovation he hopes will solve the technology hitches that marred the recently held general elections.
Fourteen year-old Ahmed Lukman has developed a Voting App, which if successful, will enable Kenyans vote from wherever they are.
The application uses fingerprint recognition and identification number to identify prospective voters. It gives real-time tallying of results for every candidate.

For Paul Akwabi, children can be taught to be innovative as early as at the age of nine.
This dream started when he was on a trip in Europe, where he met a nine-year-old techie who challenged him on some aspects of technology.
“I was very much concerned why a little kid in Europe understood technology much better than me. I realized the children in Europe, India and USA have technology clubs and academies,” Mr Akwabi says.
