    the missing info here is the amount of man hours put in. Some work for 15hrs everyday for a week and then collapse the following week. Then the kilometres covered during this period (which I suspect to be over 5k km), you can guess the depreciation of that car and see it is not all that profitable

    Looking at it, the only info missing to my eyes would be the distance covered (will help guesstimate fuel cost) to earn that much. I see most people talking of 250-300km. IMO this is very fair and I'd have no qualms about it.

    Gari inashinda kwa lami inadepreciate haraka aje? Unless one is a generally careless driver.

    sio barabara zote ni za lami nairobi, tembea embakasi, pangani, eastliegh na kayole. and again driver has no way of knowing where the client wants to go. factor in the misuse which so common, where the drive have to carry 4 fat mamas to komarock via manyaja and spine road.

    250-350km will consume about 2k of fuel, thats about 14k weekly. That dist is for a driver who has worked fir normal 8hrs, believe me that guy worked double that

    What would be your estimate for cost of maintenance per month? Plus additional costs like inspection, tracking, insurance etc.

    Ractis 1.3 duty is about 205k, C&F is about $5,500 add agent fees and port charges etc 69,500 total approximate 841k. If for Uber I'd rather go for the 1,000cc better consumption. And duty is 159k..ie dollar @103
