Konga's CEO Steps Down, Interim CEO Emerges

Just when Jumia recently changed their CEO, reports have it that Konga’s long-standing CEO & Founder, Sim Shagaya has stepped down to become the chairman, board of directors. To replace him, we have Shola Adekoya, Konga’s Chief Operating Staff who will be the Interim CEO pending the time the board appoints a CEO.
According to Tech Cabal, Sim sent an email to Konga staff informing them of the new development and how it will serve to improve Konga’s Strategy in the long run.
Despite this recent development, Sim will try to focus on the long-term vision and strategy for the company, his major focal points will be product development guidance (emphasis on KongaPay), mentoring and shaping the company culture.

    It doesn’t move me at all

  2. good for him. but I think the man should have remain the CEO for atleast two year to come.
    but this will allow him to do some mentorship for early stage Tech startups , I hear he invested in the new hailing startup “GoMyWay”.
