Ghana crowned winner of Ms Geek Africa 2023 competition

A 21-year-old final-year student at the University of Cape Coast (UCC), Ms Selasi Ama Domi-Kuwornu has been crowned winner of the 2023 Ms. Geek Africa competition.


The Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation launched the Ms. Geek Ghana Competition on October 9, 2019, aimed at empowering girls in the field of ICT.

This year's keenly contested event was held in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, from April 26-28, 2023.

The international win of Ms Domi-Kuwornu comes after she won the 2019 Miss Geek Ghana competition and with support from the Ministry, participated in the Ms Geek Africa competition and won the ultimate title.

For her prize she received a laptop, smartphone, and a cash prize of $5,000.

Ascend Digital also promised to give her a cash price of $1,000 in addition to a job opportunity in Accra to enable her to secure a better future.

She was contested by six other young ladies knowledgeable in ICT duties from Rwanda, Kenya, Benin, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Niger.

All applicants presented a solution that was original, scalable, and feasible within Africa and beyond, which seeks to address electronic pilfering in the ICT field.

The project of the girls was judged based on the theme of the summit, “Connect, Transform and Innovate” focusing on challenges that are unique to the African continent.

Miss Domi-Kuwornu presented a project named “Kasa-Cash”, an offline system that enables illiterates, physically challenged, unserved, and underserved communities to be able to effortlessly perform financial services without third-party assistance.

The Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful speaking ahead of the competition, said her ministry was committed to highlighting the role females bring to the tech sector and would also offer young girls an opportunity to showcase what they have.
