A new cab-hailing app, ‘Ntuza’, goes live at the end of this month. Conceived and developed in East London, Ntuza is the brain-child of Eugene ‘Ntuza’ Mfaka.

Mfaka is an entrepreneur from the Eastern Cape, who plans to take the app to countries across the globe. Ntuza owns his own shuttle-service, Eugene’s Executive Shuttles, and has been working in the transport industry for 30 years. Well-known throughout the Eastern Cape, Mfaka’s business was hit hard by the growth of apps like Uber, so he decided to take matters into his own hands.

To compete with services like Uber, Ntuza not only allows users to book a shuttle or call a cab, but also lets them order groceries and pay for their ride with airtime. At only R8/km, Ntuza comes in with a price that might have some Uber-users looking to jump to a new service. Mfaka has also added a panic button to his app, which allows users to alert police if things start to get hairy and aims to combat issues like human trafficking.

While Ntuza is only available in the Eastern Cape for now, Mfaka plans to take the app national and then global, rolling out to 141 countries worldwide, including Germany and the USA. Ntuza is not the only local taxi-hailing service, with businesses like Africa Ride also fighting for a piece of the market share controlled by Uber.
