As internet penetration increases across Africa, and the continent's famous mobile boom continues, the recruitment sector is also using tech-based solutions. However, online jobs-listings and application platforms have inevitably resulted in some 10,000 ill-matched applications for a given position.
Finding work in Africa can mean days of pounding the streets dropping off application letters - but now a group of start-ups are taking the job hunt online

50 year old Tabitha Karanja is the founder and boss of the only large-scale brewery in Kenya actually owned by a Kenyan.
Mrs Karanja, one of only a handful of female brewery owners across Africa, set up the business - Keroche Breweries - with her husband back in 1997.
Initially making a fortified wine, the company has since moved into spirits and, from 2008, making beer.
Its lager brand Summit is now so popular in the country that earlier this year Keroche opened a $29m (£19m) expansion at its brewery in the town of Naivasha, 90km (56 miles) north west of the capital Nairobi.

It was the morning after a night of unrest in Johannesburg's Alexandra Township that saw foreign-owned shops looted and destroyed.
Mozambican Emmanuel Sithole was walking down a street when four South Africans surrounded him. Sithole pleaded for mercy, but it was already too late. The attackers bludgeoned him with a wrench, stabbed him with knives, all in broad daylight.
Oatway says he tried to get as close as possible, conscious that the attackers were aware of his presence.
South Africa leaders took notice after James Oatway caught the horror in a wave of violence.

South African business officials said they were also concerned that other African countries could decide to boycott products or services from Africa's most advanced economy, which could have significant impact on their operations.
"The concern is the longer this drags on and the more anti-South African business sentiments starts to creep up across the continent then naturally our retail members could come under attack," Gwarega Mangozhe, chief executive of the Consumer Goods Council of South Africa, which represents over 12,000 members consisting of retailers and manufacturers

Is it “Afrophobia” or xenophobia? At the heart of South Africa’s complex problem with xenophobia is the loaded meaning of the term “foreigner.” Pejoratively, the term “foreigner” in South Africa usually refers to African and Asian non-nationals.
Many South Africans look at the attacks on enterprising African immigrants from Somalia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique, Nigeria and Malawi as afrophobic
