SASAI has introduced over 50 African languages and close to 80 languages across the globe, which has so far been downloaded in 178 countries.

SASAI is an all-in-one mobile app from Cassava Fintech International (CFI), which has pay, chat and explore features.

The app's language feature called SASAITranslate, includes Ndebele and Shona among dozens of other languages, and was announced at a Press conference held at the Bulawayo Rainbow hotel today which was attended by key media outlets in the region.

Speaking at the Press conference, SASAI Chief Operating Officer Mr Tapera Mushoriwa said since launch, SASAI had been focusing on improving the app's user experience and performance.

"We have been focusing on optimizing the app and ensuring that it gives users the best and most convenient experience they can have in all the countries and markets they use the app," Mr Mushoriwa said.

"We are excited to announce that SASAI's complete suite of pay, chat and explore features and services can now be experienced in over 40 local African languages, and we are on target to have 50 languages by end of this month," Mr Mushoriwa said, adding that this is what they mean when they say 'SASAI speaks your language'.

He also said that with SASAI Explore, a user can now select their home country, irrespective of where they are in the world, and enjoy services from their home country via the SASAI app.

The SASAI App was launched about six months ago and has rich features  and services that go beyond those offered by apps such as WhatsApp and Telegram. It is an all-in-one super app that offers payments, chat (instant messaging and social media) as well as an explore feature - all on one app.

SASAI's pay option has mobile payments functionalities which include EcoCash, while the explore option features a vast digital market place which allows users to shop on Amazon or eBay, do remittances, book a ride or a flight, download a movie or watch sport – and so many other possibilities.

Speaking at the same event in Bulawayo, the General Manager for Cassava International Remittances, Mr Shepherd Hondo, said SASAI's international remittances had brought great relief to Zimbabweans living in the Diaspora wishing to remit funds home.

"The coming on of SASAI with its #RemittanceFeesMustFall offer has been very well received by Zimbabweans across the globe, and this is evidenced by the increase in remittance volumes we have seen coming in via SASAI," Mr Hondo said.

The SASAI app is available on the Google and Apple stores.
