    • @ Deja Vu
      Trade Kings does alot of shoddy and corrupt deals with every government in power…..Trade kings is a product of corruption and they work closely with ZRA top officials to evade paying Tax…they don’t pay tax just giving brown envelopes to tax collectors and their bosses

  2. So if Trade Kings are so admired/successful why aren’t they all over Africa like MTN, Kenya Airways,Dangote group etc ?
