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.
