Electric Cars: is Kenya ready?

Forget the major issues of availability of electricity and so on. Kenya, along with the rest of sub-saharan Africa, is among the countries that would most be affected by the whole question of Global Warming. Incidentally, the Kenyan middle class (and the East African middle class in general) is buying cars like never before – nationally, and most are imported.

I am quite incompetent at discussing the intricacies of importing vehicles in Kenya – indeed Karuoro Waithaka (@karuoro) and John Wesonga (@jwesonga) are more competent as a matter of career and interest respectively.


But having looked at these electric cars that we could potentially buy in 2011 courtesy of Business Inside (@businessinside), it occurs to me to wonder, is the Kenyan government giving any special benefits to people who want to import the more efficient cars and is it an issue among car buyers?

I feel like we still pay lip service to the whole question of alternative energy – or we dont quite understand it.Nice to look at though – especially the car called Think, being built by some Norwegians

I am first an foremost a writer who cares deeply about the world. I enjoy stories - especially history for its rich tapestry of stories of people's lives interwoven intricately in failures and victories. I care so deeply about the world that I also spend much of my time and energy trying to make it better in some way.
