Jumia Technologies suspends e-commerce business in Cameroon

JOHANNESBURG, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Online retailer Jumia Technologies , often called “the Amazon of Africa”, suspended its e-commerce business in Cameroon on Monday, announcing in a statement that its transactional portal was “not suitable to the current context” in the country.

The company, which has seen its stock price decline steeply since its New York IPO in April, said it would continue to support buyers and vendors using its classified portal, known as Jumia Deals.
