Between February the twelfth and twenty-third, Kenya's capital Nairobi hosts an International Telecommunication Union(ITU) seminar. Delegates from Africa and the Middle East are meeting in Nairobi to prepare for the forthcoming World Administrative Radio Conference in Geneva next autumn. The conference in Geneva will decide about the re-allocation of radio frequencies which were established twenty years ago. Developments in telecommunications techniques over the last two decades have made it necessary to move international communications to high frequencies, but more developed countries are concerned that the present high-frequency spectrum allocated for this purpose has become obsolete, and should be abandoned. But because of economic constraints, the developing countries have not been able to adopt innovations to a satisfactory level to warrant sharing the developed countries' views.
SYNOPSIS: Kenyan Minister for Power and Communications, Isaac Omolo Okero, took up this controversy between developed and developing countries when he addressed the seminar.
