A foreign firm has lunched electric powered motorcycles in Rwanda.
Safi, the firm, explained that its fully charged e-motors can run for 45 minutes and cover a distance of 90km (55 miles), and they told reporters that they had begun erecting charging stations around the country.
This follows an August announcement by President Kagame that electric motorcycles are set to replace fuel ones.
While the development is welcome, self employed riders fear they may be out of a job or forced to work with a private firm.
Collette Ruhamya, head of Rwanda environment management authority, told journalists that the launch of e-motorbikes is a milestone to curb emissions harmful to environment.
