Umuntu Media started as a dream, a dream about connections, people and information. A dream to fill the gap and change the way six African countries will communicate, transact, find information and keep informed online.
Umuntu Media aims to be the leading pan-african local content company in Sub Saharan Africa. The name Umuntu means “person / people” in the Ndebele African language. Ndebele is part of the Bantu group of languages in Africa– by one estimate there are 522 languages in the Bantu family.
Umuntu Media launched Mimispot: a free online community platform that enables you to talk and trade easily with people living around you. All you need is just your phone!
