smartBlack Friday is fast approaching and every retailer is trying to get into your pockets.

This year, the universal ‘day of discounted shopping’ falls on November 25. Traditionally, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the US, but the world has since adopted the same. Sales on this day alone are usually in the billions of dollars.

Here in Kenya, we are starting to pick up. There are some pretty exciting deals for Black Friday and the few days before and after it.

However, there’s nothing I’ve seen like this phone deal on

This Friday, Citimarket is running a flash sale with one of the item being a sleek android phone.



The phone is Fero A4001, a relatively new entrant in the local market. The price will come down from Sh4000 to Sh999… yep, less than a thousand bob.

Do not be fooled by the low price. The phone packs superior features and I’m surprised it doesn’t cost a lot more.

It is a dual sim with a quad core processor and 32 GB storage.


This phone eliminates the need for a ‘mulika mwizi’. It doesn’t make sense to have a flash light as your main feature when you can have everything else for the same price.

Remember, the flash sale is going down on this Friday (November 18) from exactly 12 noon. Demand is high and therefore it will be on a first-come first-served basis.

And this is only a sneak preview of what to expect next week on Black Friday.

Go to right now to see what else they have in store.
