There are reports that Jumia Market has laid off several staff in what might be a complete shut down of operations.

Jumia Market is an extension of the Jumia brand and is formerly known as Kaymu.

According to Techpoint, the business which had about 70 staff is currently left with about 15 staff – mainly in the engineering department.

They are still there to ensure the completion of rerouting traffic to Jumia’s main site.
