Sasai Watch to enable Zim churches to watch services for free
Churches in Zimbabwe will now be able to post their services on online platforms, with their followers able to watch for free, on Sasai Watch.
A Sasai insider said until the COVID-19 lockdown is removed, churches in Zimbabwe and their followers will be able to upload their services and show them every Sunday on Sasai Watch without paying for the data.
“Sasai Watch is a new feature that operates just like YouTube, and that is now available on the Sasai super App.
“The service was built by Cassava Fintech International, a London-based company owned by the Strive Masiyiwa-controlled Econet Group,” Sasai said in a statement.
A special promotion has been introduced in Zimbabwe to assist churches and their followers to access services during the lockdown although the platform is available in every African country.
The free data only applies on Sundays and can also be used to watch anything else on the Internet, including some social media platforms for free.
“Sasai Watch does not stream live video, but one can upload videos of up to one hour onto the platform, within minutes,” Sasai said in a statement.
Churches can use the service by getting in touch with the Cassava Smartech team in Harare.
This development comes as a digital solution to the Zimbabwean online users as they will be able to watch church services from the comfort of their homes whilst also practising social distancing in these COVID-19 times.
