Government warns taxi drivers to lay off Uber

02 February 2016, 17:24 William Korir

Nairobi - The government has warned taxi drivers to keep off their Uber rivals after reports of violence against the American cab company.

Reports have recently surfaced of violent acts by local taxi drivers on their Uber counterparts over the huge price differences between the two models which has seen Uber drivers pick up more customers.

But the government has insisted that action will be taken on anyone who dares harm their counterparts over business ethos.

" In the last couple of days there have been reports of criminal gangs attacking taxi drivers in some parts of Nairobi," Interior Permanent Secretary Mwendwa Njoka said.

" Police have launched investigations into the matter and assure that serious action will be taken on those found guilty of the offences," he added.

The government adds that there is no space for violent acts in the country in the name of solving business rivalries.

" Business rivalry should not be solved through attacks and intimidation but through established legal frameworks," he added.

Uber have faced tough times from traditional taxi operators not just in Kenya but all over the world, with their pocket friendly pricing model making them a favourite among the young urban folk.
