Young entrepreneur establishes Kenya's first USB cable manufacturing company


Kiangwaci, Aug 19 (EFE / EPA) .- Young Kenyan engineering graduate Anthony Muthungu, 28, has started Kenya's first local manufacturing company of USB cables. According to Muthungu, he got inspired to start his own production line of cables after falling victim to substandard imported USB cables that have flooded the market. He uses recycled plastic waste for internal injection which saves him 60 percent of the raw materials in the production. The company currently manufactures Android chargers such as Micro USB and USB Type C, as well as iPhone chargers. Their cables are Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) approved and Brand Kenya certified as authentically made in Kenya product. The Kenyan market has been flooded with fake USB cables due to a large number of users using them for their smartphones in which Anthony hopes he will be able to change that narrative with his products that are already being embraced by many Kenyans because of their quality and affordability.

  • Trump Flips Fox From Friend To Foe

    For years, President Donald Trump was a Fox News superfan, routinely phoning in to give impromptu interviews and receive gushing praise. But now, Business Insider reports Trump is waging war against the network. What's more, he's encouraging his supporters to migrate over to more MAGA-friendly channels like Newsmax and One America News Network. As it increasingly challenges Trump's baseless election fraud claims, Fox News is under a siege of its own making.
