Did you know Africa’s first solar-powered bus has just been unveiled?

In the face of global warming, fostering different ways to put alternative energy to use should be our number one mission. Against this background, the announcement that Uganda-based Kiira Motors Cooperation has recently unveiled the continent’s first solar-powered bus, is fantastic news.

The “Kayoola” (which literally means mass carrier) is also a wonderful example of innovation. As such “the Kayoola sets a good precedence and inspiration trend for the technological future of urban mobility for East and Central Africa.”

The bus will be officially launched by Ugandas President in mid-February. I am looking forward to reading more about it soon.
