Dear A.S.S. Editor
So, it turns out that the African Uber driver that had his moment of infamy online was actually a Singapore PR, and not a tourist on a social visa. Means the online video is actually fake, not telling the truth. Uber has even revealed that the man is a Singaporean PR, and has been approved by the company to ferry passengers using its platform.
Uber also clarified that the man, whose name, age and nationality was not disclosed, has been a PR for 15 years and started driving for Uber about seven months ago. Under the Land Transport Authority’s regulations, PRs and foreign work pass holders can apply to become private-hire drivers but they must be employees of a company offering chauffeured services. it was understood that the driver meets this requirement.
Uber said it took such incidents seriously, adding that it will take the necessary actions, including removing the passenger or driver from its platform, if either party was found to have violated its rules of use. Watch the video again, and now we can clearly see that it was the passenger who was aggravating the situation, and not the driver. Maybe it is the passenger that needs to be taken to task and identified.
