Administrative Court to start looking into lawsuit against Uber and Careem on 11 April

The Administrative Court has set 11 April as the date to begin looking into a lawsuit filed by 42 taxi drivers to shut down ride-hailing apps Uber and Careem’s operations in Egypt, whom they say violate the law by evading an annual EGP 800 tax on cabs by operating private vehicles, Al Borsa reports. They won’t read this, but if someone knows a taxi driver, please tell him to tell them at the next meeting of the cry-babies club that legislation to formalize ride-sharing apps operations in Egypt is coming, so, good luck.
