In a press release, Jumia administration announced that starting today until its official closure, it will only deliver to pre-paid requests.
Jumia will keep operating in shipping services through Jumia.rw and they are confident that they will keep leading the market in this sector.
Rwanda is the 11th country where Jumia stops its operations after a vigorous start where people dubbed it the ‘Amazon of Africa’.
In August this year, Jumia met a series of challenges and was dragged to court several times resulting in a loss of $70 million and a reduction in share capital by 14%.
Jumia Food started operating in Rwanda in 2012 and helped people around Kigali who had no time to go to restaurants get their food delivered on their doorsteps.
