Simfy Africa CEO Davin Mole comments: “Simfy Africa separated from simfy Germany in early 2014 as the companies were organically moving in opposite directions. We are working on localization of features and conservative use of data that is clearly not a concern in Europe. It was important for us as a company to be focused on African consumers. The fact simfy Africa is now independent and 100% locally based means we can do just that.”
