In a Facebook post, Strive Masiyiwa, Executive Chairman & Founder of the Econet Group has announced the launch of Kwesé TV, a pay TV service that will offer sports and entertainment programming to African markets.

In the post, Mr. Masiyiwa said: “Our satellite communications business, Liquid Sat, has already built a platform which allows us to deliver what is known as Direct TV to the home (DTH), in all the countries of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Our fibre optic company, Liquid Fibre, is the largest builder of terrestrial fibre in Africa. And, of course, Econet is one of the most experienced mobile network operators on the continent. These are just a few of the assets we’ll deploy in a unique way, never done before in Africa.”
