There have been “fights” ever since Uber got introduced into Kenya. Normal cab drivers went o a rampage at one time burning up Uber taxis and attacking the drivers claiming that the company “stole” all their customers.
Sometime last year, Uber dropped its fare prices drastically which did not go too well with the company drivers who claimed of poor profits.A few days ago he drivers downed their tools and went on a demonstration demanding an increase in the fare prices.
Uber heard their cries and have announced an increase of prices effective today and all though their needs have been met Kenyans are not too happy about it. Kenyans on twitter have vowed to boycott the cab company after this move.
