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.

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

I remember Econet blaming Zimbabwe’s economic challenges. Refer to the link . So you telling me kuti Econet Media had decided to invest allover and left Zimbabwe? They just wanted to collect the money and use it somewhere else?
