Fired Up Zimbabwe Billionaire Masiyiwa Hits Back at Critics

When Econet founder Strive Masiyiwa endorsed President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government, saying he believed the Zanu-PF leader was sincere and that sanctions must go, he angered many Mnangagwa opponents who labelled his statement cruel and misguided. Now the business mogul has responded to critics saying he suffered under former president Robert Mugabe's rule, reiterating that he cannot be monopolised, and above all is entitled to his opinion.

Self-exiled former minister Jonathan Moyo has blasted Strive Masiyiwa over his stance on sanctions.

Alpha Media Holdings boss Trevor Ncube has defended Masiyiwa amidst barrage condemnation.

Harare businessman Shingi Munyeza calls for the removal of sanctions.
