Called Orbital Reef, the park will be jointly built in partnership with another space company, Sierra Space.

According to the billionaire and tech giant, the ambition is to commercially develop, own and operate a space station in low Earth orbit.

2. SA’s AfriNova Digital rebrands as mojaPay

Homegrown digital payment service startup, AfriNova Digital, has rebranded as a reimagined product called mojaPay.

The rebranding comes just one year after its 2020 business launch.

The new development did not affect the startup’s operations as it retains its target to remain people and businesses in the townships and rural areas.

mojaPay looks to bringing more convenience and inclusion in addition to creating business opportunities for people who can sign up as an agent and earn commission by selling the products offered in the app.

The attention of the public, however, has been drawn to a possible development that might lead to confusion in areas of mistaking mojaPay for the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development’s financial management system, also known as MojaPay.

For mojaPay, it offers a range of digital and financial products and services to the unbanked and underbanked.
