  1. They are free to say whatever they want. For me , i don’t think that Konga has what is takes to satisfy their customers need. Every one in my office has one or two negative words for Konga. Many people purchased many items on the said BLACK FRIDAY ,paid cash for all items and got a confirmation sms from Konga, awaiting delivery. They waited and waited for their items to be delivered to them, when the items were not forth coming . They decided to call Konga , only to find out that their items was cancelled by GOD KNOWS WHO. Until now no items were delivered and no money was refund.
