OLX sent an email to users that it was moving to Jiji.ke to improve services and experience. That was 7th June, 2019
Below is the email we all received and also displayed on their website under the help section…
This message is to inform you that we’ve taken steps to improve your buyer and seller experience by partnering with Walie Holdings Ltd.
Walie Holdings Ltd. owns Jiji.ke, which will power a new website and experience where you can continue to buy and sell.
As of 20 June 2019, when you come to our website it will redirect you to Jiji.ke, but you will still be able to sign in and continue using your existing account there, without having to create a new one.
For the purposes of continuing the service, we will transfer your account details (including your personal information that you have provided to us) and your active advertisements to Walie Holdings Ltd on 14 June 2019.

We hope this has helped. Good luck and happy trading!
Jiji, if you didn’t know, is Nigeria’s largest classifieds. And it seems they are expanding into Kenya through their Jiji.ke address.
As to whether Kenyans will embrace Jiji is a matter of wait and see. As an OLX user I expect a better user experience at Jiji.ke.
