  • According to projections, they are poised to be the Amazon of Africa. They are said to be determined to make sure this happens.
  • Word has it that about 5,000 people are going to be employed, with plans to expand to other African countries.
  • Like I reported here, a foreign company, Naspers acquired Konga some years back. Just found out that that another company, AB Kinnevik, was also part owner of Konga.
