Can anyone recommend a CDN provider that has a strong presence in Africa for Edge Server locations?

Cloudflare has pretty good coverage in Africa: https://www.cloudflare.com/network/

Cairo, EG
Cape Town, ZA
Djibouti, DJ
Durban, ZA
Johannesburg, ZA
Lagos, NG
Luanda, AO
Mombasa, KE
Port Louis, MU

Akamai also has really good coverage: https://www.akamai.com/us/en/solutions/intelligent-platform/visualizing-akamai/media-delivery-map.jsp

Are there specific regions within Africa you are looking for edge serving for? Last I heard, connectivity in the region was a bit convoluted but getting better (i.e. there weren't interconnects between countries and a lot of traffic routed to France and back).
