DRC: The Woman Inventor Behind Traffic Safety Robots in Lubumbashi
When Thérèse Kirongozi's brother died in a pedestrian accident, she noticed the number of road fatalities involving pedestrians - particularly amongst school-going children - was particularly high in her country. So she decided to "be the change". Her giant robots have become a feature of her city's streets and are credited with reducing road accidents across the country. Now she wants to install them far and wide.
