Taxi hailing firm Uber has moved to a new premise to better accomobate its driver-partners in Nairobi.

The new office at The Riverfront on Chiromo Lane is meant to serve Uber’s driver-partners where they can seek technical support andask questions about the app.

During the opening of the office on Wednesday evening, Uber gave out shopping vouchers to Ayub Kongere, Erastus Mbogua and John Kamwati driver-partners that had completed the most trips and had the best rating.

Also feted were Susan Musembi, female driving partner with the best rating, and Jane Mwangi, female driver-partner with the most number of trips.

Uber’s Communication Associate, East Africa, Janet Kemboi denied claims that they were kicked out of Mirage Building due to frequent strikes by their driver-partners who used to block the gate.

“The move has always been on the pipeline due to the increase of drivers and we wanted to have the drivers not to wait in the scorching sun as they waited to be attended,” she said.

The office will be open from Monday through Friday, from 9am to 3pm.
