Kenya is one of the most lucrative markets for taxi hailing apps. Local apps are giving giants such as Uber and Bolt a run for their money, and most of the ride hailing apps have had to expand to more towns where no one thought they would. Even so, the market has also not been friendly to some of the apps such as Mondo Ride, SafeBoda and Click Cabs. The following have withstood the test of time.
