Nairobi Uber drivers explain why they are on strike

Uber drivers in Kenya's capital, Nairobi have gone on strike because of what they describe as low wages and poor working conditions.

In a statement, Uber said they are putting in place mechanisms to address the concerns of the drivers.

One driver explained to the BBC that while he receives $40 (£32) from passengers every day, after paying his costs he is left with nothing.

Another said that some colleagues have taken their own lives because of the pressures they are under.
