Libreville, Gabon,  December 22 (Infosplusgabon) -  Strive Masiyiwa, a London-based Zimbabwean telecoms businessman, entrepreneur, and philanthropist has been appointed to Netflix’s board.

 

Masiyiwa is the founder and executive chairman of Econet Global, a telco company that traverse 29 countries in Africa, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

 

Econet group offers mobile payment, broadband distribution and satelite services.

 

His appointment comes in hand with Netflix's need to expand in other continents like Africa and Asia.

Masiyiwa is one of Africa's richest billionaires and has been recognized for his generosity even in his home country, Zimbabwe.

 

He once offered to pay the southern Africa country’s doctors to end their four month strike that had paralysed the health sector.

 

Masiyiwa offered a six months fellowship with allowances to the public doctors through his charity foundation.

 

Masiyiwa fortune is estimated at 1.1 billion USD by Forbes.
