Global ride-hail startup InDriver launches its app-based service in Kampala (Uganda) this week.

After going live in Nairobi in June, the online taxi company now operates in four African countries: Kenya, Uganda, South Africa and Tanzania.

Founded in Russia and now headquartered in New York, InDriver’s mobile app allows passengers to name their own fare for nearby drivers to accept, decline or counter. The startup operates in 200 cities, is used by 26 million people and has raised $15 million in two rounds from Leta Capital, according to a release, Crunchbase and a company spokesperson.
