When a giraffe is born, it drops from a height of nearly 2 metres to the ground and is up and running within an hour!
That is similar to the story of uMAX – the POTRAZ license was granted, and with that the task of launching a whole new, very different Internet service!

On this day we talk about “Developing a Creative Economy” in Zimbabwe: Opportunities for Creatives!
