Safaricom-backed Little Ride to take on Uber, Taxify in Kampala starting next month

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Safaricom- backed online taxi-hailing app Little Ride is set to unveils its services in Uganda mid next month, marking its first expansion outside Kenya.

Little, developed by technology firm Craft Silicon, says it is in the advanced stages to rollout the tax-hailing app in Kampala.

“We are currently finalising plans with the relevant authorities ahead of the rollout of the app possibly in the middle of next month,” Kamal Budhabhatti, Craft Silicon founder, tod The Independent in an interview.
