A Peek Under The Hood Of South Africa's Mobility Scene feat. Obakeng Morapeli Matlhoko Of AftaRobot

Back on the show for the first time since contributing his fair share of involuntary hot takes on Episode 109 entitled "Investor Bias Debate 2.0 + Should Africa Embrace Uberisation?" Tapsnapp Founder, Vije Vijendrenath, assumes co-hosting duties in Musa Kalenga's absence. I chat with him about the workarounds he's deployed to secure funding for two startups that he previously struggled to get investors to take seriously-- namely, Tapsnapp and YouBabyandI.

Then, joining Vije and me on the show for a deep dive into South Africa's mobility scene is Obakeng Morapeli Matlhoko, the Founder of AftaRobot-- South Africa's ambitious "Uber for minibus taxis". Obakeng shares trench insights into his company’s audacious attempt usher in a new paradigm for the country’s notoriously fragmented minibus taxi industry.
