Zumah – The new service platform, which is referred to as the Revolution in African Technology, led by widely known Qofi Kenkey in real life as Harold Abbey, launches on the 18th of August at the Coconut Groove Regency Hotel at 6pm GMT. What blows my mind is, Qofi is a final year Actuarial Science student of the University of Cape Coast, indeed the University of Competitive Choice.
Zumah is coined from the Xhosa word, “xhuma” a language commonly spoken by the people of the Zulu clan in South Africa. And it simply means “connect”.

Every single service can be found on this platform, from a programmer, a business consultant to a carpenter near you. The platform works per your given location, bringing out every single service you seek from the remotest place you could find yourself.

There are a lot of unrecognized talented artisans and craftsmanship in our country, people are learning new trades everyday, and people are making new things everyday, but how do a wide variety of audience who equally needs these services locate and acquire them? This is serious predicament that has haunted our country for years, but Zumah intends to answer these questions.

Bra Amuah: Share with us some features of Zumah?
Qofi Kenkey: This service, Zumah, has been programmed tangentially with the landscape and settlement distribution patterns in Ghana to make it note efficient in Ghana, that Facebook, because Facebook, has been programmed consistently with the land distribution patters in abroad and overseas countries.

Qofi Kenkey: Haha……laughs in capital letters……. Well they ask why Kenkey. Some actually relate me to a booming Kenkey business on UCC Campus. But its actually false. I don’t like Kenkey that much.
