Over one hundred Uber drivers on Monday demonstrated against their employers over the 25% charge on fares.

Uber charges 25% on every fare its employees charge their clients in Ghana.

However, the drivers argue that the 25% charge is exorbitant and, therefore, want the figure slashed to enable them survive the hardships in the country.

“Uber only controls their apps but charges 25 percent  on  every  service we offer and this is killing our business," one demonstrator said adding, “all attempts to resolve the issue have been unsuccessful”.

They further accused Uber of disconnecting them from the App without their knowledge and also implementing policies without their input.

They have subsequently suspended services untill further notice.


The protesters numbering close 150, started demonstrating from the Kawukudi Park at Nima and converged at the Ghana International Trade Fair at La, Accra.

 About 20 police officers accompanied the protesters who were draped in red.
