TaxiJet: The Uber of the Ivory Coast

The controversial taxi-calling app Uber is slowly making its way across the world.

In Africa, it has already reached Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa, but it is yet to make its mark in Francophone Africa.

Instead, three Ivorian entrepreneurs have come up with their own version, called TaxiJet.

After rolling it out in Abidjan, they have ambitious plans to take it to other French speaking capitals, as the BBC's Tamasin Ford reports for Africa Business Report.
