Apparently, Rwanda continues its exceptional recent history of innovation and development with news that the country has launched a model of electric motorbikes and bicycles.
Rwandan President Paul Kagame on earlier this week officiated the launch of Mara Phones manufacturing plant, which will make smartphones in the country.
The Mara X and Mara Z will use Google’s Android operating system and cost 175,750 Rwandan francs ($190) and 120,250 Rwandan francs ($130) respectively.
Well, the country has launched a model of electric motorbikes and bicycles.
According to reports, the bikes are the business of Safi Limited, a local start-up company committed to raising sustainable and efficient solutions to problems of transportation in the East African country.
 
Both motorbikes and bicycles will be available to the general public and customers will have to download a mobile app which they will use to unlock the bicycles from charging docks across Kigali, Rwanda’s capital whiles commuters with no smartphones,  smart-cards would be issued by the company to access the bikes.
