African Influencers For Development 

David Nzassi Mbompela


(Republic of the Congo)

Mbompela believes in the adage “if you can dream it, you can do it.” David got concerned when he saw the laissez-faire attitude in his country, despite the health threat posed by COVID-19.

Inadequate sanitary provisions during the pandemic, inspired David to think fast and this inspired him to dream up an all-encompass-ing solution. “I saw people leaving their homes and entering public places without temperature checks, or sanitation,” David says.

He adds: “It is this concern that inspired me to make a ‘small house’ where people enter for a rapid temperature check and sanitization.” This is how Smart Portic was born.

The all-encompassing Smart Portic incorporates an infrared thermometer for taking temperatures, a hot purifier to sanitise clothes with an automatic tap for washing hands, a GSM phone to call the COVID-19 call center, protection switches, and a thermostat.
