October Issue of The African Business Journal Now Online

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA--(Marketwired - Sept. 19, 2013) - George Media Inc. is pleased to announce the October issue of The African Business Journal is now available at http://www.tabj.co.za/emag/2013/Oct/TABJ.php.

This issue looks at the booming region of East Africa. We have an exclusive interview with the President and CEO of GE Africa, Jay Ireland. We talk about GE's role in U.S. President Barack Obama's 'Power Africa' initiative plus the company's part in Kenya's Vision 2030. We also ask whether GE's expansion in Africa has anything to do with China's increasing continental dominance.

Columnist Larry Seruma tackles the dynamics of the East African economy; Sean Rogers gives us a comprehensive lesson on how the continent is divided geographically and Marc Mcilhone introduces us to an innovation that's changing the quality of life in areas that lack access to electricity.

Our TABJ Q&A profiles Gloria Wavamunno, daughter of famed East African entrepreneur, Sir Gordon Wavamunno. After interning for the acclaimed men's designer, Ozwald Boateng, Gloria launched her own fashion label which has received critical acclaim. We also revisit the Toronto International Film Festival and discover African themed movies are creating Oscar buzz. All that and more, plus profiles on some of the most exciting enterprises on the continent.
