And officials of the company who gave him the tuk-tuk hope it can soon make inroads into Africa. “We are expanding fast and our new plant being opened later this year would raise our monthly production to about 800 units from 200 units now,” said Sakda Sangsawaet, marketing executive of Pholasith Tuk-tuk International Ltd.
Mugabe ends his five-day visit on Monday. Sakda’s firm now sells tuk-tuks to more than 30 countries, exporting around 2,000 of the vehicles a year, each priced from $1,900 to $2,500. (Reuters)
