The government in Ghana has issued a new law for anyone who owns a car in Ghana whether new or old
You may not be a chaplain in the church of the first person to think of you when imagining the first automobile factory in Ghana.
But this is precisely what Quadu Savo, founder of the Reformed Christ Church, known locally as the "star of Africa", did.
Savo's story dates back to the late 1990s, when his own company, Kantaka, started manufacturing electric appliances such as televisions, sound systems, musical instruments and sewing machines. What characterized his initiative is that it is the first of its kind aimed at manufacturing in those consumer countries.
Today, the company is divided into two sectors, one specializing in electronics design, the other manufacturing cars in Ghana.
Cantacas are designed to suit local use. According to Ben Savo, Quadowo Savo, the company is seeking to launch a design targeting the segment of low-income people.
As for the most important work-related challenges in Ghana, Savo points out many obstacles, including frequent power outages and the difficulty of permanently securing fuel for power generators.
Another major challenge facing the company is gaining local consumer confidence in the local industry. Competition remains harsh and tends to be the most famous foreign manufacturers in the field.
But Savo believes the son will be able to grow, adding: "We aim to build sports cars and buses, and we intend to spread in Africa."
