Econet Media Cannot Distribute Kwese TV Satellite Content To Zimbabweans- Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has ruled that Econet Media (Mauritius) cannot distribute Kwese TV satellite content to Zimbabwean viewers because it failed to comply with the terms and conditions under which it was granted licence.

This follows the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe’s (BAZ) appeal contesting a High Court decision allowing Econet Media Limited (Mauritius) to distribute Kwese TV satellite content to Zimbabwean viewers.

The High Court had nullified a decision by BAZ cancelling the content distribution licence awarded to Econet Media’s partner, Dr Dish (Pvt) Ltd to provide the service pending confirmation of the provisional order.

  1. Provisionally what economic value did the arrangement generate for the Zimbabwe economy as the Zimbabweans put their House in order even as they granted the access initially? More rational or economically sensible is a fine and continuation of service provision while Zimbabwe sorts its folders in the backyard away from the citizens and public who currently benefit from the services in a multiplicity of social and business parameters.
