Africans, are we so used to our own mediocrity that when an African country leaps forward we're inclined to pooh-pooh their efforts? This is a great innovation and Uganda must be congratulated. Progress does not happen in a linear and incremental fashion, sometimes you have to leap ahead into the unknown. Who would have thought that Ugandans would accomplish such a feat? Even if nothing comes of this, surely the students of Makerere would have been bitten by the innovation bug? Anyways congrats to Ugandans again, you've done Africa proud...

Kampala. Kiira Motors Corporation, the company that government created to start motor vehicle manufacturing in Uganda, has announced plans to begin automobile production in 2018.
Speaking in an interview at the Corporation offices in Ntinda, a city suburb last week, Mr Paul Musasizi, the chief executive officer, said so far the two concept vehicles that have been produced - the Kiira EV and Kiira Smack should serve as a demonstration to Ugandans that the country is the real deal for automotive engineering and technology innovation.
“There is a difference between manufacturing and developing concepts. We have developed three concept vehicles and we are working on the manufacturing plant in Jinja,” he said.

He explained that concept vehicles mainly rely on environmentally friendly technology that minds about the environmental needs of future generations.

“Climate change is real and requires us to think about the future,” he said, as he inspected the final touches on the 35-seater bus named Kayoola. The bus will be powered by solar energy.
“The same people who promised that they will deliver a two-seater sedan, promised that they will deliver an SUV. We promised a solar powered bus which we are delivering next month,
