We love people who are passionate about solving problems, Bongajum Lesley Ndzi is one of them so we are crushing on him today.
For a young man who was frustrated by the high rate of power cuts when growing up as a student and this led him to create the Bonga Power Bike to light up Africa, we can only be impressed!
The award-winning entrepreneur who witnessed the first-hand effects of frequent power cuts while he was schooling in Cameroon and even after he established Bonga Juice Bar, took it up upon himself to proffer a solution to the electricity crisis in Africa as a whole.
Having realized that he could convert the mechanical energy generated while pedaling into electricity, Bongajum embarked upon actualizing his idea and has today created the Bonga Power Bike.
A bike which converts mechanical energy generated when pedaling into electrical energy and stores it in a battery. The stored energy, he says, can then be used for lighting homes, charging phones, power fans, and energy-saving television among other things.
