Econet founder, Strive Masiyiwa has corrected the British media report claiming that he is British.
This comes after the Zimbabwean-born business mogul attained a British citizenship and was named the first black billionaire in the United Kingdom.
Responding to one of his Facebook followers who had congratulated him for being named first British black billionaire, the various awards he has won and his humanitarian work in Africa, Masiyiwa wrote:”Thank you, Joseph. Just one correction; I’m not British, I’m Zimbabwean. The article simply said the first black billionaire to live in Britain.
“There are many billionaires on the list who are residents of the UK, but not British citizens.
“To suggest that I’m British simply because on the list of a UK newspaper is the same as I’m an American since I have long appeared on the list of Forbes Magazine.”
