Yango, an international digital cab company, says it has received with some concern reports made by users in Maputo about alleged harassment, attempted rape and assault involving drivers associated with the platform.

In a statement released on Thursday, the company promised to strengthen security measures in order to protect customers seeking its services.

"Recently, reports have reached us on social media about alarming incidents involving our passengers and partner drivers in Mozambique, so we want to express our deep concern. The safety and trust of our community are the pillars on which Yango is built. We take these reports very seriously. As such, we have contacted the passengers affected and the local authorities to offer our support," the document reads.

According to the head of the platform in Mozambique, Zameer Adam, quoted in the document, Yango has been at the forefront of innovation in security measures, in an incessant quest to protect its community. For this reason, "I urge the Police of the Republic of Mozambique (PRM) to investigate these incidents and we offer our full cooperation to assist in the investigations. We also encourage anyone with information related to these incidents to come forward and contact the PRM services directly."

Yango operates in more than 20 countries in Europe, Latin America, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa, including 13 new markets launched last year.
