SANUDI Muchindu travels to his workplace three times a week with the help of a Buffalo bicycle he purchased two months ago in Lusaka.
The bicycle was bought through a Pay As You Go bicycle pilot being implemented by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) Zambia office, in partnership with a local technology company called Onyx Connect, which merges regular products people use in everyday life that impact them socially and economically and bundles them with technology.
Sanudi bought the bicycle on an incremental basis and uses it to ease his way through Lusaka’s heavy traffic to get to Rhodes Park School where he works as a carpenter.
“The reason I bought the bicycle is because my car had to go to the garage for repairs and I needed to get to work on time while it was being fixed,” he shares.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
