Africa's slow web domain market welcomes (dot).africa [Hi-Tech]

The Morning Call

As of May, 2017, there were about 5 million domain names associated with Africa with a total annual value of $52 million.

This is not much because it represents only 1% of the generic top-level domains registered worldwide.
