With the competition among authorised mobile phone distributors becoming stiffer each passing day, Motorola and Cell2Cell launched a â€œMotobusâ€ on Thursday to help them spread their wings further in the rural areas.
The Mitsubishi Rosa bus branded by Tangaza Uganda is solar powered and comes with TV, computers, two double beds, a kitchen, toilet, bathtub and a luggage trailer.
Nikesh Patel, the senior director for market development, said similar buses were earlier launched in South Africa and Nigeria. He said the bus is about fun and excitement in respect to reaching out to Ugandans in the rural areas.
The cocktail held at Cell2Cellâ€™s offices attracted a number of socialites and phone dealers including former health minister Mike Mukula, Ivan Koreta and designer Sylvia Owori.
Artiste Ragga Dee entertained the guests by aptly spicing up his Letter O song with Motorola words. â€œMotoâ€¦motoâ€¦oooooorola,â€ he sang.
However, Owori loudly complained that Ragga Dee left out her among the O names when he composed the song.
To console her, when he was singing it, he mentioned her ahead of other names like Okello.
