They seem to be everywhere you look in and around Monrovia. Although they have greatly contributed to easing the constraints of commuters, there still seems to be more passengers on the roads than transport in and around Monrovia.
“We saw this anomaly and decided that more needs to be done to assuage this situation,” added Saleel Pradhan, Sales Executive at Silver Automobiles Ltd located in Red Light, Paynesville, and Caldwell Junction in Duala.
Speaking to Pradhan and some of his sales executives at the ELWA Junction yesterday during the dealer’s “sell-pay” promotion, he said that the purpose of the promotional campaign is to enable Liberians to own a means of providing for their families.
The promotion for the new Bajaj RE 4S keh-keh (commercial tricycle) was graced by hundreds of locals interested in owning one.
One of the winners of promotional T-shirts at the event said, “I will be the first in line tomorrow to make a deal to finally own one of these vehicles.”
According to sales executive Jonathan M. Z. Saye, after making a down payment and a confirmed background check, people interested in owning a Bajaj have three months to complete payment for the vehicle.
“The successful client would receive a six-month warranty, which would be extended to a year with a deposit of US$200, and would include a 5 percent discount on spare parts. It also includes free oil change and maintenance,” Saye said.
Speaking on the unique functions of the enhanced Bajaj keh-keh, Saye said it has a twin spark plug engine, which gives it better torque to maneuver in traffic; strong chassis and body; easy reverse gear; and multi-flow cooling vents.
“This is the best keh-keh on the market, with all the above unique features. Anyone interested in owning a transport business should come and see us,” Saye added.
He said those interested in the “sell-pay” promotion can visit their showrooms at Caldwell Junction in Duala or near Coca-Cola Factory in Paynesville.
