  1. Upstream white label suppliers had a fallout with Econet. Building a streaming platform from scratch was impossible, by this stage.

  2. It’s the administrator and not Econet selling the shares. Once a business goes into administration, the shareholders and directors have no say in decisions thereafter.

    1. Adminstrator? How would that play out? That all these entities in all these jurisdictions were in receivership…. or something…under one “administrator”!
