Uber cabs cause controversy in Kenya

Uber has only been available for a short time and has already instigated clashes with taxi drivers which have escalated to the point that the police and transport misitry have been forced to step in.

Uber is basically an app which connects drivers to the passengers directly, this saves going through a centralised booking process or haggling for low fares. It also has unique tracking feature allowing customers to track their journey as they wait aswell as during their journey

Mobile taxi service Uber is pushing into Africa, but in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, traditional taxi drivers are fighting back.
