A 13-member Board of Directors for Uganda’s Automotive Industry flagship Kiira Motors Corporation (KMC) has been inaugurated in Kampala by the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (MoSTI) Dr. Elioda Tumwesigye.
Kiira Motors Corporation is working with reputable strategic partners to produce 30,000 Buses for the regional market, with 65% parts and components localized by 2030.
Government has announced June 2021 as the date for the start of manufacture of electric cars in Uganda, having failed to hit the 2018 deadline.
The road from Kampala, the capital of Uganda, to Jinja, the site of Africa’s first electric bus factory, was packed with cars on a July morning. The traffic crawled. Breathing hurt your throat.
