I got a tip through a comment from a reader of this blog. I am republishing the comment verbatim because I have verified the information.

PayPal users in the following African countries can now receive money: Malawi, Algeria, Mozambique, Lesotho, Morocco, Botswana and Seychelles. Whats even better for them (unlike those from South Africa and Kenya) is that they can withdraw directly to a debit card which is a faster way of withdrawing. In Kenya for instance, you have to withdraw to a US bank account , which very few people have, and if you have it, it takes 3-4 days to withdraw it. I now so much envy guys from all these other countries that can withdraw using a credit card.
This is significant because PayPal is the leading online payment system with 237,778,590 users worldwide at the time of writing.
