The president of Uganda has simply put out that everyone prepared to swap their fossil-fuelled bikes will get an electrical bikes without cost – and from what we will see, there’s no restrict on how many individuals can come up with this deal.
In response to the report from Electrek, the announcement was made by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni himself on the end-of-year verbiage to the crowds, with a further perk: The man doesn’t need to pay for the ICE-to-EV program overseas’s finances.
That’s apparently being lined by ‘Traders’ (which apparently stay unnamed):
“We now have agreed with some buyers, to remove the petrol ones and provides the house owners the electrical ones,” explains Museveni.
“This swap will save motorbike operators 50% of the price.”
In fact, a deal like this wouldn’t be attainable and not using a you-scratch-my-back-I-scratch-yours catch; fortunately, it seems the buyers’ new-found license grants to run charging/battery swap stations will work to the favor of all people – not less than, till these bikes get some miles below them.
Keep tuned for updates – we’ll you’ll want to maintain you posted on the perfect of the most recent.
