Uber

One Uber driver in Singapore had the honour (or dishonour) of having former, President Robert Mugabe in his/her car. According to Former Minister of Higher Education, Jonathan Moyo his late boss, Robert Mugabe used Uber as his daily mode of transport in Singapore before he died. In an ope-ed, the exiled former Minister wrote:

Mugabe died not only out of office, but also out of the country with the attendant indignity in Singapore where, despite government claims that he was being accorded State facilitation and assistance, his regular mode of transport there was Uber taxis, as he had to make do with very little.

For someone who was rolling in a motorcade for 37 years and in a Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman Guard last year, it must have been quite an uncomfortable experience to commute in Uber.

Is it true?

A picture circulating on social media (shown below) shows the former President’s wife and daughter about to get in a van of sorts. And, mind you, vans are the kinds of vehicles Uber offers for its Uber XL package. Is that one of the Uber XL vehicles Robert Mugabe’s family was using on that day?

  1. This is sad and really low. This Alvin guy is undoing all the good work done by Techzim pioneers. Guy seems to be just checking the boxes.

    1. Hi Neil. Sorry for the disappointment. What’s wrong with this article and what’s wrong about me (Alvine). Happy to hear your feedback

  2. techzim c’mon you guys tsvee kupa review yema new iPhones and new apple services or even comparing them to the Huawei and Samsung competition. the type of articles you are publishing these days aren’t worth the technological news that’s happening ryt now in zimbabwe and across the world

  3. alvin u have disappointed me on this one. if he takes an uber does not mean he does not have money and mind the words coming from jonso. he is just bitter

      1. Alvin hapana chekuita apologise apo. IRS not about having money or having lots of it. It’s about the fall on standards. From a protected president who rode on bullet proof cars to Uber. That’s the irony.

  4. Chero akafamba ne Uber zvinebasa reyi, isu tikutoshandisa makombi wani. wotoita zvinoenderana nemari yako. Vanga vajaira ka kuchengetwa nemari dzekuba. Iye jonso wacho kana zvakamurwadza akadii kuvatengera moto.

  5. Alvine, you are doing a wonderful job. We can’t go tech tech, tech an no break. The Uber story is refreshing. After all Uber is transport tech. We’ll done.

  6. Munanyarawo nezvamunonyora who cares about the mode of transport he used and kana anga asisina mari zvinei nemi let him rest in peace what more do you want from a dead man kune better news out there… disgusting mhani nxahh

  8. There’s nothing wrong with this piece. It just goes on to tell us Uber or e-hailing services are for everyone. This is related on goes hand in hand with tech news. How many times have we heard about Richard Branson traveling economy class yet he owns a fleet of luxury jets? Bob azoshamisirei by embracing technological developments from other nations? The bad thing is he left us in the first industrial Revolution while he enjoyed the 4IR in other countries which have made great strides
