The week ahead: 15 - 19 May 2017




The week kicks of with several results out today. This should shake the markets up a bit following the easter holoday lethargy. Vodacom’s full year results are out. The telecommunications company also announced that they will acquire a 35% stake in Safaricom from Vodafone in exchange for 226.8m Vodacom shares. Vodacom says this will allow them to better manage their sub-Saharan operations while opening up the Kenyan market.


On the political front, the constitutional Court will be hearing the UDM’s case for a secret ballot in the no confidence vote for the president, the date of which will be announced following the ConCourt decision.

, buy_x1_alsitop40june'17@ 48145,


I got the squad tatted on me from my neck to my ankles
Pressure from the man got us all in rebellion
We gon' go to war, yeah, without failure
Do it for the fam, dog, ten toes down, dog
Love and the loyalty that's what we stand for

I'm a slave to your games
I'm just a sucker for pain
