  1. I do not understand Minister. Does he see it fit that one invests in a product while others do not invest but are allowed to equally share the fruits of another man’s labour?

    1. We desperately need FDI in this country. Please open up for the brave investors knocking on your door Minister!

  2. Why do I get the feeling ‘SupaCash’ is gonna be an actual thing?!

  3. Obvious and advisable decision to make Brainworks succeed.

    1) You are a Minister responsible for Telecoms
    2) You are a shareholder of Brainworks, that needs a pie of EcoCash’s market share
    3) You have the power to bend EcoCash to your will
    4) You use that power

    An pretty intelligent path of reasoning.

    Wouldnt you do it too?

  4. Super Mandiwanzira is making sense here. This is the only way that the market can develop.
