On the challenges so far, Mr. Ongwech had this to say, “We’ve had a relatively smooth time launching in Kampala. We’re however working hard to ensure all drivers comply with our registration requirements since we have had some potential drivers come to register without the necessary requirements and we’re forced to turn them away.”
Until recently, the Boda boda and taxi sector has had a bad rap for safety and hooligan behavior of the rider. Mondo Ride enters the market as one that aims to create a community of boda drivers that value professionalism, road safety and being role models in their community.
