Today we received a clip anonymously from an unverified source, who wanted us to tarnish the name of Uber Kenya and it’s representative.
The clip was meant to trigger us into action, engaging on a hate-speech campaign against the revolutionary taxi company, in light of its growing demand and popularity.
Other than a major mobile telephone service provider has also launched a taxi-service, which we will not dignify with a mention since they are led by a bunch of dimwits who should have thought about this idea before Uber made an entry in Kenya.
Digital-disruption is the new way of life in Kenya. It has made hitherto unknown players, join the fray and participate in nation building. In skewed economies as we have here, the mainstream business atmosphere is not conducive for innovative technologies, a reason why start-ups like Uber are giving them sleepless nights.
Caption: The email we received
The video, obviously produced with the help of the company competing with Uber, claims that the country manager for Uber Kenya is Nate Anderson is a racist, then goes ahead to show victims, who arent bold enough to reveal their names.
We are 100% that Nate Anderson isn’t a racist, and that this video was produced by Uber’s competitor. So over and above bribing journalists, this notorious competitor is trying to subliminally-influence us into a hate campaign against Uber with a bunch of third-rate workers? Pathetic!
We’d like to advise comfort zone-corporates who have thrived in this toxic and skewed business environment which doesn’t accommodate merit, but only rigs standards to create an illusion of success, that the digital-era is here, where even a bedroom start-up can conquer the world.
Watch this mediocre video produced by Uber’s competitor, a leading telecommunication firm notorious for bribing Business journalists, and witness first-hand the corporate mediocrity in Nairobi.
