The president of Uganda has simply put out that everyone keen to swap their fossil-fuelled bikes will get an electrical bikes totally free – and from what we are able to 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 an extra perk: The man doesn’t need to pay for the ICE-to-EV program in a foreign country’s finances.
That’s apparently being lined by ‘Buyers’ (which apparently stay unnamed):
“We have now agreed with some buyers, to remove the petrol ones and provides the homeowners the electrical ones,” explains Museveni.
“This swap will save bike operators 50% of the associated fee.”
After all, a deal like this wouldn’t be doable 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 – at the least, till these bikes get some miles beneath them.
Keep tuned for updates – we’ll you should definitely maintain you posted on the very best of the newest.
