Juliana Rotich is Afromusing -

Erik Hersman is White African -

Ory Okolloh is Kenyan Pundit - - more political/policy than straight tech, but she just took over as Google's Africa policy lead

David Kobia is DKFactor -

Daudi Were - Mental Acrobatics - is wicked smart and deeply involved with the Kenyan geek/random hacks of kindness community -

Moving out of East Africa: WebAddicts is a great South African tech blog -, and the author links to several other strong ZA tech blogs. David Ajao, a Nigerian internet entrepreneur in Ghana, is worth your time:
