Why the name Kidatu?
In 2007 one of our Directors attended a Frost & Sullivan Executive MindXchange event in Prague.
The opening speaker began his session by telling the story of Kidatu in Southern Tanzania. The town lies at a junction of the Cape to Cairo railway line, the two halves of which were built in different widths – 67mm different to be exact! Because of this difference, all traffic must stop at Kidatu and passengers must transfer trains in order to continue their journey. The station at Kidatu enables this transfer, bridging the gap between the tracks.
Like our namesake, Kidatu bridges distance, enabling people to communicate and work seamlessly.
P.s. we see misspellings of our company name now and again: ‘Kitadu’, ‘Kitatu’, ‘Kidato’
