Africa Connected host Lee Kasumba says the taxi industry in Kumasi, Ghana may provide a more desirable model for South Africa.
In her experience of the market , Kasumba discovered just how efficient the city's public transport system is.
In this particular terminal where the taxi's are, they have taxi unions which we would call a taxi association and each union has it's own station and if you have an issue you can walk up to the desk and talk to the management of that union. In my mind I thought this is probably one of the solutions we would need in South Africa.— Lee Kasumba, host of Africa Connected
If you have to travel on a taxi you are able to do that with a level of dignity, with a level of safety, there are police there, everything is clean. They are so strict about it.— Lee Kasumba, host of Africa Connected
