Took them long to admit defeat...

I still think Vodacom should have rather gone for a full banking solution. Savings/tranactional accounts + credit cards and use the massive number of Vodacom outlets as branches.

They were trying to emulate the success of mobile money solutions in the rest of Africa.

Vodacom outlets are generally too full as it is

We are not the same as the rest of africa though. We have many bank branches here, unlike the rest of africa.
