Peter Kariuki CTO at SafeMotos


Peter is a self-taught software developer. Born in the rural community of Engineer in Kenya, his first glimpse of a computer at age 12 inspired him to go to his local internet cafe and secretly print off hundreds of pages of C++ documentation.

Personally responsible for about 90% of SafeMotos 200,000 lines of code and dozens of API integrations, Peter’s philosophy to dev is based around the world’s strongest cup of coffee and a singular level of focus.

One of Africa’s most inventive start-ups operates across extremes in the continent’s ICT spectrum: Kigali, Rwanda and Kinshasa, DRC.  Safe Motos currently connects commuters with predictable motorcycle transport and drivers with access to socio-economic mobility.
