Strive Masiyiwa Steps Down From Econet Board

Strive Masiyiwa, the billionaire founder of Econet Wireless, has stepped down from the telecommunications giant’s board of directors effective February 1.

He has been on the board since the inception of the company in 1998.

In a statement released Friday, Econet Wireless’ board and management expressed gratitude to Masiyiwa whose leadership they credited for the company’s growth. Reads the statement signed by group company secretary Charles Banda:

It is through his leadership, dedication and perseverance that the company has grown to become one of Zimbabwe’s largest and most successful businesses. 

The Board and management takes this opportunity to express their appreciation to Mr. Masiyiwa for his entrepreneurial leadership and his unwavering commitment to the company and his philanthropy that has changed the lives of so many in Zimbabwe and across Africa.

Masiyiwa’s company is into telecommunications, banking and other businesses, and places him in the top 10 of Africa’s richest people.

The philanthropist also sits on a number of respectable boards which include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, National Geographic, Unilever, Netflix, has been on The Rockefeller Foundation and is the only African member of the United States Holocaust Memorial.

He is also the chairman emeritus of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa and African Union Special Envoy to the continent’s response to Covid-19.

He only stepped down from the Econet Wireless Zimbabwe board but remains the Chairman of Econet Wireless International.Thats why he has been hardly in Zimbabwe.Tawanda Nyambirai,Beatrice Mtetwa and Douglas Mboweni will steer the ship on his behalf
