Mobile money was the proverbial financial mask shiedling the entire country when movement was at its lowest and fear of infection at its highest.
The life altering announcement by President Museveni limiting movement of people around the country and closing the nation’s borders to the world meant that people could not travel to take or receive money and food to their loved ones.
So for many, mobile money was the saving grace that even with the looming danger of a deadly virus, their loved ones far away would have access to money to pay for food, shelter and medicine.

Dear Fellow South African, Today is International Women’s Day. For more than a century, this day has been celebrated across the world as part of the struggle to realise women’s rights in the social, political, legal, reproductive, health and other spheres.

There can be no meaningful progress for women if our society continues to relegate women to ‘traditional’ professions, occupations or roles, while it is mainly men who sit on decision-making structures. Fittingly, the theme of t...
