In this edition of our Technology and Innovation Tuesday (#TIT) series, we take a look at African innovations that could have changed the world but can’t be found.

In this era of technology, it is exciting to see some of Africa’s sharpest minds go to work in search of life-saving solutions to myriads of problems facing the continent.

There are now local solutions for healthcare, finance and energy that could become globally relevant.

Some of these innovations have, however, gone missing right after they were introduced.

This has been largely blamed on lack of funding and prototyping equipment which makes the process costly and burdensome, as well as, inadequate government support.

Below are some of the African innovations that could have changed the world but can’t be found.
