The young start-up changing the face of Uganda’s automotive industry

In recent years, Uganda has witnessed a wave of technological innovation. In a country where access to traditional infrastructure and services can be limited, technology is emerging as a powerful catalyst for change, offering solutions to longstanding socio-economic issues.

AutoFore attended GITEX Africa at the end of May.
