Orange Botswana has announced Kabo Raditladi as the winner of the just ended Orange Botswana Developer challenge. The 23-year-old Raditladi won through his application eCattle and walked away with a SAMSUNG galaxy Tab4.

The challenge, which ended in November, was an online challenge targeting startups and developers from Africa and the Middle East. The challenge was aimed at boosting innovation in this region and it was open to African developers who reside in the countries that Orange operates in.

The competition ran across 12 countries with each country expected to crown and announce their top three local projects. The local winners would then enter into a group challenge where they could walk away with 10,000 Euros as overall winners.  One of the competition panelists Gazza Motswagole said they received a total of 20 entries from local developers. “From the 20 ideas we received, the evaluation committee picked the top 10 ideas. The 10 short listed developers were then given access to Orange APIs to develop and integrate their services,” he said.
