On 28 July 2019 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
At their workshop in a Kampala suburb, Lawrence Okettayot and his business partner, both in their mid-20s, drilled holes and screws into a steel-lined, green wooden box designed to dry food in an eco-friendly way. Their invention, a low-tech thermal dehydrator, can be used to process fruits like mango, banana, and pineapple, as well as vegetables such as okra and eggplant, to stop them spoiling.
