The COVID-19 pandemic has been an eye-opener on many fronts. In South Africa, it has been shown that with enough urgency and willpower, our government can move into action and fast-track some service delivery. However, the coronavirus pandemic has also exposed the South African government's shortcomings as far as service delivery and infrastructure development is concerned.
In this episode of The Tefo Mohapi Show, we are joined Duduzile (Dudu) Mkhwanazi, Managing Director of Uju Digital. Dudu also serves as an advisory board member for GirlCode and Fiam WiFi in Lagos, Nigeria.
In this podcast, Dudu highlights how the South African government's bad decisions, and indecision affects us all through delayed public service delivery and in some cases no service delivery. One such example is the SA Connect broadband project which was supposed to have been rolled out across South Africa in 2013 but has barely moved into phase two in 2022.
Beyond this Dudu also talks about the telecommunications industry in South Africa.
