Tomorrow, we are entering into the second week of July, which began on a sad note-to-many because of the social media and mobile money taxes. UberBoda had also introduced free rides but, unfortunately, the promotion is also ending today, Sunday.
An online challenge, however, has been set in which customers can have it extended.
Get your friends to tweet about #extendfreeuberboda, the more you retweet and use the hashtag, we will extend the free uber boda for another week from 2pm to 5pm. Lets get #3000tweetsforFREEuberBODA
Let’s get tweeting and retweeting?. pic.twitter.com/v6tPmhs8tz
