The Newly-Launched Uber Cash Is the New Nightmare for Uber Drivers in Africa

By Nzekwe Henry

Five days ago, global ride-hailing giant, Uber, announced the addition of a new payment feature to its app for users in Africa. However, this is the sort of development that would’ve gotten Uber drivers bummed as much as it got Uber and its users pumped.

Uber Cash, as the new payment method is called, is being touted as a convenient payment method, and it probably is.

It is basically a wallet within the Uber app; users can fund this wallet through bank cards or digital wallets at their convenience, and then pay for their trips and even pay for food ordered from Uber Eats from the funded wallet within the app.
