Takudzwa Nhongo, Kytte, e-learning app

Takudzwa Nhongo in 2017, went about trying to find the problem with education in Zimbabwe. In the year prior the ZIMSEC pass rate was 29.96%. To understand what was going wrong, Takudzwa applied to write 18 subjects for his O-Levels and came out of that with 16 A’s and 2 B’s. This was quite a remarkable feat and to achieve it he developed study techniques/models that he has implemented in the e-learning app he co-founded called Kytte.

We spoke to Dream VC cofounder Mark Kleyner about venture capital, angel investing and all things funding. Mark shares his view on the good, the bad and the ugly of the venture capital industry in Africa. For example, you have heard that in the last decade, over 75% of the African startups that received funding had no black cofounder. We discuss what’s going on there and more

Comrade Fatso talks about how the Private Voluntary Organisations (PVO) Bill is an existential threat for Non-Governmental Organisations in Zimbabwe. Seeing as Magamba is an NGO, it’s hard not to cast one’s mind back to the time when the City of Harare tried to demolish their HQ at Moto Republik. Now it looks like they are after the business model.

NetOne thought they could pull a fast one on Zimbos by setting their One-Fi bundles at a ridiculous price… Imagine having to pay US$800 for 80GB? That’s insane and Zimbabweans swiftly reminded them that they are at our service, not that other way around.

Zimbos put the fear of God into NetOne over the ridiculous data prices

ZOL Zimbabwe (now Liquid Home) announced that it was going to be charging 10% Excise Duty on Internet services and VOIP. Pushing things on to the consumer is a time-honoured tradition in business, however, ZOL isn’t to blame here. The fault lies with the government for making internet services more expensive by pushing a duty that is reserved for unsavoury things onto a utility like the internet.

    It makes it so that those of us plebs utilising the zero-rating don’t click on posts whose full content we know we can’t access. Someone once suggested this I thought it had already been implemented.

      Excellent idea. Hopefully, the need for clicks won’t trump customer friendly titles

    Literally writing every subject in the o level books…. I would think that’s a person subjecting thier mind to a challenge to see how it goes, glad he helped create a learning platform to help others on the how to pass.

    I love the technikari podcast. Hope to be there one day. Listening to today’s episode, I couldn’t help but wonder how Takudzwa couldn’t be bothered to reply. Straight to the point answers and short. The interviewer really had to press and probe to get things out of him.

    The guy was doing research , he wasnt an O level student kkkk the time he wrote his Os he barely managed 5 Os then affer college when his mind was more developed he wrote again his Os to garner popularity for his so called elearning app…when techzim want to push a service they spice it up whilst in reality it is just blah…code downloaded or bought on the internet a few changes then they package it as an awesome app
