It's about time a black South African starts a network providing service. Joel Mafenya, a Soweto-born entrepreneur, has proven to be ahead of the crowd as he has just achieved the feat. Mafenya launched his mobile provider, Taxicom Mobile, in December 2020.
"Meet Joel Mafenya, founder of Taxicom Mobile. A 100% black-owned mobile company that's rolling out its services across neglected townships & villages. The company is already recruiting people and aims to employ 6 000 youth within 5 years.
"Please share, make this Kasi HERO famous," wrote @kasieconomy on Twitter as they introduced Mafenya and his mobile network to the masses.
South Africans were all for the news. Many of them took some time out to ask important questions about the brand while others simply praised the young man. Read a few of their comments below:
"It’s not only about black-owned. It’s also about ZA-owned. Many of our listed companies take profits abroad to shareholders who don’t care about local priorities."
"What is their service offering in the market?"
Meanwhile in other awe-inspiring Briefly.co.za news reports, a local man from Soshanguve, Pretoria with the Twitter handle @justicemahole3 recently decided to take a leap forward and start his internet provider business - an internet café.
Taking to Twitter, @KasiEconomy shared the news, also looking for people to support the young man.
"This young man from Soshanguve, Pretoria opened his own Internet Café business in a shack. Please retweet. Let's make him famous," the page captioned the heartwarming Twitter post.
Many people obviously found the post super inspiring, liking it over 9 000 times. Many of them also headed to the comment section to share how motivated they were by the young man who is fearlessly pursuing his dreams.
