The businessman lists the features of the tuktuk as follows:
- Four doors with adjustable windows
- Fully fledged AC system that regulates the temperature.
- radiator with a 2-litre capacity coolant
- Interior leather décor
- 150 cc engine
“My tuk-tuk is top notch, it has permits to visit private areas. This means I can easily go to the State House with this tuk-tuk” Kabuga claimed.
“I call upon the Uber administration to come so that we work together as my tuk-tuk is more like any other normal car,” he said
This move has however scared other tuk-tuk drivers who fear losing clients to this latest machine.
