Uzalo Behind The Scenes Secrets Producers Do Not Want You To Know

Uzalo Behind The Scenes Secrets Producers Do Not Want You To Know Now that Mumsy is coming back, will the Uzalo writers keep Thulani, or Godfather to give Mastermind competition? Or will they keep Nomcebo to keep Gabisile on her toes?  Word is, the show’s writers have now(today) changed their minds about ending one of the actor’s contracts between, Nombulelo Mhlongo (who played Nomcebo), Thulani Shange (who played Thulani) and Sizwe Khumbuza (who played Godfather). None of the three actors were fired and their contracts ended because they ran out of story-lines for their characters in the next season.

Regent converts loan to equity

BY MTHANDAZO NYONI PREMIER African Minerals (Premier) says Regent Mercantile has agreed to convert its loan plus accrued interest in the amount of US$390 040,92 to new ordinary shares in accordance with the terms of the loan agreement. The two parties entered into a loan agreement in June last year and under the terms, Premier was required to make two equal payments on August 1, 2019 and September 1, 2019. But Premier failed to repay the loan despite several payment extensions, leading Regent to convert the loan to new Premier shares at a conversion price equal to 90% of the daily volume weighted average price during the five trading days immediately prior to the relevant paymentdate. Commenting on the development, Premier chief executive George Roach said: “Regent invested in this loan ag...

Strategise for informal economy or die, Cross tells companies

BY MTHANDAZO NYONI THERE is no company that can survive in Zimbabwe without a strategy for the informal economy, now constituting over 70% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP), economist Eddie Cross has said. Addressing Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries Matabeleland chamber annual congress last week, Cross said local companies should have a strategy on how they can tap into the informal sector for survival. “Then there is the issue of the informal sector — now over 70% of our GDP.

No company can survive in this country without a strategy for the informal economy,” Cross said. “I was asked in 2019 by the Minister of Finance (Mthuli Ncu...

Old Mutual to delist from ZSE

OLD Mutual Ltd is poised to stop trading its shares on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange (ZSE), the latest step in the government’s efforts to bring order to its chaotic foreign-exchange market. The insurer agreed to move its listing to a new bourse in the country that will only deal in foreign currency, three people with direct knowledge of the matter said. The deal came after talks on Monday between representatives of Old Mutual, the Treasury, the Securities and Exchange Commission of Zimbabwe and the ZSE, the people said, asking not to be identified because negotiations were private. President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government has blamed a plunge in the local currency on the 175-year-old insurer’s share price. Companies were using the so-called Old Mutual Implied Rate (OMIR) to determine the fo...
