Reports from TechMtaa have emerged stating that MIH Internet Africa [digital arm of South Africa's Naspers] is planning to shut down Kalahari Nigeria and Kalahari Kenya. MIH has reportedly sent a notice of the closure to its employees. Rumors state that Kalahari hasn’t recouped the money it has spent on advertising and running both websites.
