Strive Masiyiwa: Business Must Support the Rule of Law

B Team Leader Strive Masiyiwa, Chairman of Econet Wireless, talks about the critical role of businesses investing for the long-term in nations themselves. This is critical for protecting shareholder value, and, he explains, is also vital for the people of Africa that the rule of law be established, and that corporations are a positive actor in that process.

Masiyiwa discusses how, through "patience and faith," Econet was able not only to defend and expand the profits of investors, but demonstrate to the world the ability of the Nigerian court system to render a just verdict—all while extending infrastructure critical to Africa's growth and prosperity to the developing continent.
