Free classifieds in Uganda are becoming commonplace for locals to stream in search of either something to buy, or finding people who could be interested in what they are selling.
Such rapid growth in classifieds advertising is creating tremendous opportunities for Ugandans who have new or used items they would want to sell online but don’t have advertising funds.
Is your space filled up with items that you don’t want to just give away because of their value? Now you have the opportunity to advertise them for free on Ugandan local free advertising sites.
