The list tells a story of a business which was well-spread across Africa. Consequently, it serves to confirm that Kwesé TV’s failure was not down to Zimbabwe’s economic turmoil given that Kwese was also present in countries that have relatively well-perfoming economies.

  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”!
