Rwanda sets record as 1st country to produce made-in-Africa phones

Rwanda, a central African country, is on record as the first to produce cell phones in the continent in October 2019.

The information available shows that the gadgets produced come with higher-end options such as fingerprint sensors that assist with unlocking the phone.

Such a feature is one that several phones used in the continent lack and this comes not only as a push for technology but for high quality as well.

Rwanda, according to a report by fortune.com, has challenged the status quo by overcoming the challenges associated with the 1994 genocide.

Rebranding itself as a technology hub, its capital, Kigali, has become the home of a number of incubators.

Rwanda’s minister of technology, Paula Ingabire, has explained that: “It boils right down to our turbulent past being left without anything, and the use of ashes as a development instrument for cohesion.”

Africa’s technological space is enjoying growing support from foreign countries in recent times.

American financial services cooperation, Visa, invested $200 million in Interswitch, a Nigerian bills company.

Microsoft has also opened places of work in Kenya and Nigeria for engineers running on synthetic intelligence, system studying, and combined fact.

This came a month after Google opened an artificial intelligence laboratory in Ghana.
