Four universities from Ghana are to represent the country in the Zain Africa Challenge 2009, which will be held in Kampala, Uganda, from 13-23 February. Teams from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, University of Developmental Studies, Valley View University and the University of Cape Coast will join their counterparts from Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia for the knock-out tournament organised by the international mobile telecommunications provider in which they will be quizzed on various subjects including science, literature, history, culture, geography, music and sports. The winning team will receive a cash prize of US$50,000 for the university and US$5,000 for each participant.

This is the first time that Ghana has taken part in the annual Zain Africa Challenge, now in its third edition, after the telecommunications company launched the services in the west African country late last year.
