NOTE: Kaymu, together with all other websites (Jovago, Lamudi, Camudi, HelloFoods), managed by the Africa Internet Group were all merged in 2016 to become Jumia Group. Kaymu was specifically rebranded to Jumia Market. Owing to this development, Kaymu.com now redirects to Jumia.com. So you can now access Kaymu Ghana via Jumia.com.gh.
