Africans are perhaps not as bad as always reported and they actually show that they are equally as talented as the oyinbos.
A Grade 12 learner in Namibia's Ohagwena Region has invented a sim-less mobile phone that allows users to make free calls and watch one TV channel.
Simon Petrus, a pupil at Abraham Iyambo Senior Secondary School, created the phone using spares from a phone and television set.
Complete with a light bulb, fan and charger socket, the handset functions off power supplied through a radiator and is able to make calls to anywhere through the use of radio frequencies.
The invention, which is made up of a radio system, is attached to a box and also allows the user to view one TV channel on it.
