Former Jumia executives have teamed up to launch “Kapu”, a social e-commerce startup.

“Our goal at Kapu is to build the most relevant model of e-commerce for the majority of urban consumers in Africa. By working with existing community groups and local entrepreneurs, we believe we can play a part in reducing the cost of goods and unlocking opportunities for millions of people,” said former Jumia Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sam Chappatte, who leads the team.

The platform will offer various products at wholesale prices, including quality fresh produce from Kenyan farms.

Kapu started its operations earlier this year and today has more than 1,500 Kapu Agent Collection Centers in Nairobi. The agents are located in Eastlands, Kasarani, Kawangware, South B, Kibra, Embakasi, Githurai and Kiambu. Kapu plans to open up access to its services across Nairobi by March 2023.
