Tanzania: Tanzanian search engine

White African spots two new East African websites: “Bongoza is a new search engine for Tanzania. I’m intrigued by this idea of a niche search engine by country. Usually I would think that the big search engines would do an adequate job for any area, however it might be different if there’s a human helping to index uniquely Tanzanian content, especially as much of it is in Swahili.”

    This is a very good idea, bongoza search engine has a potential of over 120 mio. customers. It is such unique idea putting in mind Eassy Fibre optic project will do to ICT in the region. I advice this guy to also reserve domains for eastartpage and africastartpage as that’s will enrich his idea with more customers. As a brand itself it’s value is immense! Keep up the good work
