Bolt Food shutting down in South Africa

Ride-hailing and on-demand delivery company Bolt has confirmed its Bolt Food service will shut down in South Africa in December.

MyBroadband asked the company about the development after receiving a tip-off from an industry insider.
 
It is a little surprising to hear that Bolt Food is closing operations in SA.

In the broader scheme of things, I wonder how Bolt's financials compare to that of Uber. Last, I had checked, Uber still hasn't become profitable (it made a profit in 1 year, but losses in every other year).
 
Great news, Now if they could get rid of all delivery bikes(checkers sixty,Ubereats etc) The world would be a much better place.

It is a convenient service, granted. My sister uses it a lot. But I myself am old fashioned. I go to the physical shop, but then you encounter all these workers running around with their trolleys with their scanners picking stock for their deliveries and they block you and just get in your way. That actually annoys me more than the scooters.

Meh the scooter drivers have almost killed me so i have a strong dislike for them. Not to mention they make the country look like some 8th world country with their ugly scooters. We drive cars here not scooters and tuk tuks like they do in Nigeria or India.

Please leave MY Checkers alone!
