According to Uber’s head of East Africa, Uber Connect Cars will also benefit drivers as they will be able to alternate between package deliveries and ferrying passengers, thus unlocking more earning opportunities.

“At a time when we need more opportunities that allow people to be more economically independent, we believe Uber and other platforms can be a bridge to a sustainable economic recovery,” he said in a statement.

Uber already offers delivery services through its Uber ‘connect’ bodaboda services. The service is however ideal for smaller packages.
