I reported here that Computer giant, Zinox, has purchased retail online store , Konga. Here are some things I found out.....

  • 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.
