Show Notes

E-hailing company, Bolt, has launched its African headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya and the question in the mind of some Nigerians is, why not Nigeria?

On Today's episode of the Techpoint Africa Podcast, we kick things off with Bolt's decision to set up its African headquarters in Kenya. While Oluwanifemi and Emmanuel shared opposing views on whether Nigerians should be bothered about the news or not, the verdict remains Kenya was a better option.
