NUL ECONOMICS GRADUATE SHAKES UP THE LOCAL TAXI INDUSTRY

 

Kopano “Change Agent” Sekhoari is the brains behind the famous Urban Taxis that is taking the country by the storm. He started with just one car, but he is now running a fleet of more than 18 cars. He transports people far and wide in Lesotho and in the region. In the process, “Urban Taxis” is quickly becoming a household name, a force to reckon with.

Plus he happens to have been schooled at the feet of some Economics gurus at the National University of Lesotho (NUL). “I studied Economics not as a profession,” he revealed. “I studied it as a way of life.”

Due to the manufacturing techniques used, these bricks are stronger, more artistic and rich in variety and colour.
