Cairo is proving to be fertile ground for the taxi-hailing giant, Uber. While the Egyptian capital is infamous for endless traffic and inefficient transport systems, Uber is defying the odds and is said to be attracting drivers in hordes. Uber currently has around 60,000 driver partners in Africa, but it had 30,000 in Cairo at the end of August. It is adding them, in Cairo, at the rate of 2,000 a month making the city home to more than half of the Uber drivers in the continent. Like in other cities, Uber has had to fight off protests from local taxi groups that have accused it of operating illegally. So far, though, the government has not intervened.
