The Anatomy of a Betting Nation

A few days ago, I spent the day in a client’s
office where I was doing some work. The office was manned by four young people,
three ladies and one guy, who seemed to have graduated from college within a

The missteps and challenges that M-PESA faced in Kenya

When M-PESA was
launched in March 2007, we did not know what impact it would have on our lives

At some point in
campus/college, especially during your final months or semesters, you will need
