Shareholder Dispute at Croco Holdings

In early 2015, a cousin of Chingwena, Farai Matsika who was now 30% shareholder of Croco Holdings, is reported to have made efforts to exit Croco Motors, saying that he felt crowded by new senior executives hired and that he wanted to focus on other business ventures. The senior executives had been brought in by Chingwena. Matsika reportedly offered his shares to Chingwena, subject to valuation of the business by auditors. Matsika was suspended as CEO however after he ordered a valuation of the company.[1]
