“We are excited to announce that SASAI’s complete suite of pay, chat and explore features and services can now be experienced in over 40 local African languages, and we are on target to have 50 languages by end of this month,” Mr Mushoriwa said, adding that this is what they mean when they say ‘SASAI speaks your language’.
He also said that with SASAI Explore, a used can now select their home country, irrespective of where they are in the world, and enjoy services from their home country via the SASAI app.
