New ride-sharing startup Gawana is set to launch in Rwanda in March 2017, allowing travellers to share journeys and split fuel costs, reports Disrupt Africa. The app will be launched on an invite-only basis and aims to offer travellers an alternative to public transport. It was co-founded Darcy Dwyer, Rachel Howell and Agnes Nyambura. “Ultimately, the goal of Gawana is to introduce ride-sharing in East Africa while providing business opportunities for East Africans,” Dwyer said. “While sharing economy initiatives have become popular, long distance transport is a serious problem in most African countries. We wanted to bring a sharing economy solution to transport problems.” Gawana plans to expand quickly to Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania with the goal of spreading throughout Eastern and Southern Africa.
