New African tech-hubs
Our continent is home of some of the best tech hubs in the world, with Kenya and South Africa being the leaders. But they are not the only countries. Following suit, Mauritius, Ghana and Rwanda are the next countries to keep an eye on. For instance, did you know that Mauritius was the first country in Africa to launch cellular system in 1989?
