The talented girl revealed that “The mobile app reduces traffic jams in major cities that face many traffic problems. ”
Since then, Phafane has established herself as a successful young entrepreneur by launching her businesses. She is the founder of Spectrum and the co-founder of VulaRobot and Moval.
“I have always had an interest in business, which has driven me to take part in business contests,” she told Pretoria East Rekord.
However, the traffic jam application is not the only mobile application developed by Phafane. She has also designed an application to solve the proof of residence problems in South Africa.
“We designed an application that will use GPS to confirm a person’s residence,” she said.
