Jumia Mobile Week would be over today, after seven days of crazy discounts on mobile phones of selected respected brands, with each brand having it’s own day. The biggest mobile sales Africa has ever seen is rather an under-statement, as Jumia did more than ever expected. Though most mobile phones were sold in flash-sales as expected, we saw a good many people happy to have ordered their choiced new devices and got them delivered within days as promised!
