The system is officially ruined by the acquisition after the Nigerian company decided to replace the OLX business model with theirs.
UI is lame. Some ads are fake. Asking for e-mail verification from users whose ads are primarily dependent on phone calls as a contact method.
The after trails and fails while verifying your e-mail address, you get this.

We need another alternative that works just like OLX did. Watu wanateseka sana.

OLX was pure bullshit from day 1. Watu wengi wameibiwa hizo mitaa. I don't know of any successful business from OLX.

some businesses thrive from olx, i just bet the Nigerians were buying "data" not the business models. I don't know what "new" concept will the nigerians come up with.....btw who owned OLX?

The idea of OLX is great, but the execution was wrong. I think it would have been a better site if it worked like E-bay where you don't have to meet the seller in person.
What that means is having a 3rd party who withholds the payment until the product is verified by the buyer.
If the product is fake, the buyer is refunded the money and the seller is redflagged.
