This is bad for local retailers People can do drop shipping, affiliate marketing and I can't imagine the number of drivers to be employed, Call centre agents you name them. So stop complaining It will be the best thing for SA. Really hope it happens But WHY? We have to normalize buying & supporting local 🇿🇦

Amazon’s launch plans for South Africa – codenamed ‘Project Fela’ – shows the company expects to launch its marketplace in South Africa in February 2023. This will include its own marketplace and the launch of the Prime membership programme. Verwey was deployed to one of the farms in the vicinity on 25 April, 2022 to protect property against rioting farm workers who were causing widespread destruction and havoc in the area because they wanted a pay rise. The country also plans to launch in Nigeria in April 2023 under the same project codename. “If you were to ask successful investors what the secret is to their success, chances are good that the majority will say it’s a long-term approach with quantifiable goals, which is why starting your investment journey early in life can be one of the wisest moves you can make,” he said.
