SNAIL MAIL IN AFRICA


Ivory Coast has taken steps to make delivering old-fashioned snail mail easier as many of its roads don’t have names: it’s adopting the technology developed by What3Words, a UK mapping start-up to assign unique three-word phrases to locations that can then be found using the app or the website.

I hope to see the Progress and see whether this is successful in Ivory Coast and hopefully be adopted to other African Countries.A  Post office Box(P.O) is okay but we should be able to move beyond that and have Mail delivered to your gate.

The Only issue I see with this in Countries like Kenya is that Criminals will take advantage of this and rob people in broad daylight.
