Ghanaian streets are jammed with imported cars, but one entrepreneur hopes to build a car in Ghana for Ghana to reduce the country’s reliance on foreign products, according to an AFP report.
Ghana imports 100,000 used cars a year — it’s a tough market to crack.
Kwadwo Safo, a self-styled apostle, has 250 apprentices working for him building Kantanka cars.
Kantanka creations have a Ghanaian flair such as car dashboards and TVs made from locally grown wood. Kantanka branded vehicles range from a talking car started and controlled with a gold watch to solar and electric cars. Products waiting to hit the market include Kantanka pickups, buses, TVs, aircraft and programmable robots.
