      true indeed ! ngazvirambe zvakadaro . actually we wouldnt expect less especially from a Blue Chip company like Econet. mawana ma huge profits from the Humble people of Zimbabwe , it makes sense to reward zimbabweans with such an investment as well. im glad kuti companies are realizing that its up to US to develop Zim , not this vague concept of just waiting on an ill Government or Council to do things. econet lead the way , many will follow in your footsteps. thank you for this
