About Mapozi

We were introduced to Mapozi by someone who told us, he can fix any car or truck. We were naturally intrigued. What we didn't know if that Mapozi works out of a dirt parking lot with a noticeable lack of tools. The resourcefulness of Mapozi, and the other mechanics in the cooperative, is something you've got to see firsthand to really appreciate their work.

On this unique experience, you'll get to go behind the gated lot and get a firsthand glimpse into the large mechanic zone near Nyabugogo Taxi and Bus Park.
