HERE ARE THE FACTS AS STATED BY STRIVE MASIYIWA WHO BROUGHT ECONET TO NIGERIA
“In one country, we had a contract, on which we earned over $30m a year. It was very important for our business. Two very powerful politicians, demanded that I pay them a bribe of $8m, to keep the contract. I refused. They had our contract cancelled and we were thrown out. They then replaced us with one of our largest global competitors from Europe. whose executives immediately paid the bribes. I reported them to the US Justice Department, as they are listed on the New York Stock Exchange. They admitted that their officials had paid the bribes, and fired the officials. They then left the country. One of the politicians was later indicted for corruption and is now serving a 13 year jail sentence. Years later we returned to the country, and we are building again, our presence in that wonderful country.”
