JM BUSHA, JM BUSHA INVESTMENT GROUP

Foreign currencies are no longer acceptable as legal tender in Zimbabwe, with Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube saying Monday that the Zimbabwe dollar is now the only acceptable medium of exchange for local transactions. This effectively sidelines the multiple currency regime that Zimbabwe has been using alongside the bond notes and the recently introduced RTGS$ currency. In a Statutory Instrument (SI) on Monday, the Zimbabwean Minister of Finance gazetted the official side-lining of the SA Rand, Botswana Pula and US Dollar as legal tender.

SANDILE ZUNGU, BLACK BUSINESS COUNCIL PRESIDENT

President Cyril Ramaphosa is due to deliver what analysts would argue is his most critical State of the Nation address (SONA 2019), as he ushers in his own philosophy into the sixth administration.
When he took over the reins from former president Jacob Zuma to salvage the little bit of respect the ANC had left, the ideas and outlooks he had revealed at the previous SONA were not entirely his.
“Thuma mina” was a mere sacrifice made by the president to allow himself more time to craft an actionable plan for the country, if the ANC was given another chance to govern.

DR IRAJ ABIDIAN, CEO PAN-AFRICAN INVESTMENT AND RESEARCH SERVICES

The axing of Old Mutual CEO Peter Moyo has sparked investor worry that SA’s second-largest insurer might use shareholder funds to pay him an exit package that runs into millions of rands.
A group of pension funds with a collective shareholding in Old Mutual of less than 1% want the company’s board – led by chairman Trevor Manuel – to engage with shareholders and put any possible exit package for Moyo through a vote.
If Old Mutual accedes to the pension fund demands, it would be a rare move as there are no rules in SA that give shareholders the right to reject a golden handshake granted by a board to an outgoing CEO. On Tuesday, Old Mutual told the market that it had sacked Moyo, nearly a month after suspending him over a conflict of interest and governance issues related to investment holding firm NMT Capital, which he co-founded. Old Mutual is also NMT Capital’s only institutional shareholder as Old Mutual Life Assurance Company, a long-term insurance subsidiary of the insurer, owns a 20% stake.

CALVO MAWELA, MULTICHOICE GROUP CEO

MultiChoice reported a strong set of full-year results on Tuesday, with good growth coming from its lower-tier pay-television bouquets, although its DStv Premium segment remains under pressure.

In the year ended 31 March 2019, MultiChoice added 1.6 million subscribers across Africa, representing growth of 12%, taking the total active base to 15.1 million. Core headline earnings were up 10% to R1.8-billion. Trading profit was in line with the prior year at R10.2bn, while the trading margin remained stable at 30%. However, the group reported a diluted headline loss of more than R1.5-billion as a result of costs associated with expanding its black shareholding and losses related to foreign exchange contracts.
The strong operational performance was achieved “despite continued macroeconomic headwinds and consumer affordability pressure, illustrating the resilience of our products”, the group said in a statement to shareholders.
