The government is bankrolling a $6 million fund for youths to develop over-the-top (OTTs) applications.  The government wants these OTTs which ride on the internet to challenge existing platforms such as WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook.

Information, Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services Minister Supa Mandiwanzira said:

We will give the youths access to internet so that they are able to develop their programmes. At present we have an innovative fund of $6 million to go towards that initiative.

When we started the programme, we went out scouting for innovative youths in Harare and Bulawayo. I can confirm talent is there.
