    Hi all,

    I have been told by Anthony Muller (below) and the previous CEO of Ecsponent that about R11 BILLION of revenue is coming into Afristrat / Ecsponent by year end, which could clearly be utilised to pay ALL pref share investors DOUBLE what they invested with just half that revenue (total R 2.7 billion of shareholder funds).
    George Manyere (current CEO) is said to be planning to stop this payment to investors, meaning there's probably no way of getting our funds back if he succeeds.
    The lawyer currently on the case has confirmed with the JSE that irregularities have occured in the issuing of these ordinary and hybrid shares.
    Failing this it seems there is no chance later of success in retrieving funds.

    Can we try to compile a centralised list of ALL investors we know of involved here.
    I may be wrong, but there should be as many as 2000 or so!

    Not sure if my email is visible here, but I am available at:

    We seriosly need to beat this thing together!

    I believe what Afristrat is doing here is practically criminal.
    The fact that a new company name has been established around the handling of these mismanaged funds is testament to it.

    They invested in a clearly dodgy fintech company MyBucks (it only takes a single glance at their share price!) and took big risks with investors' hard-earned life savings.

    The risk profile was never properly explained to investors from the start, nor what they were investing in!

    Now that the damage is done, we are given lip service and window dressing and made to believe that "our capital is safe!?"

    That was then, but now the company is simply refusing to give investors ANY info or response to requests for info - they simply ignore everyone.

    They need to put forward a clear plan of action on how they intend to recover investors' funds. Investors deserve much netter treatment than this!

      Zane... even the bank of Zambia called him George Manyere a delinquent not in so many words, the said he has to remove himself as a director and major share holder of any financial institution

    We are all pensioners that were promised that our money was guaranteed but now we have nothing. We need to commence a class action against them. Contact me on Facebook if you agree.

      Good day. I am also a hybrid preference share holder. Have you found other investers that wants to take action against Afristrat? Have any one approached the Ombudsman?

    I spoke with Floris Slabbert yesterday, he is one of the debarred executives. Lots of stories about the expecting R300 million from USA within the next three months. Personally I think this is a pack of lies as this has been the ongoing story for the past year since Ecponent was liquidated. If all the investors can come together and let us take them to court to get our money back. The shares are worth nothing currently and my mother invested her little savings through Ecponent, now losing almost everything. These people need to go to jail for what they are doing.

      I was caught when they took my money in October 2019 knowing that they were in trouble.
      I do agree that we should start a class action against them. If we club in we can employ the best legal representatives in South Africa to get our money back.

      Get a copy of the Companies Act of 2008 number 71 and see why this case can be won if we stand together.
      I need affidavits from 20 persons to enable me to lay a criminal charge against the directors of Ecsponent.

      Thanks to Floris and all directors of Ecsponent I have lost my house and lifetime savings and at age 76 I do not know where to turn to for help.

    I believe I shall never have enough space and time to express my grievances regarding this unbelievable irresponsibility of so called professionals, educated as they have claimed, to spend our money on extravagant misleading adverts on the Internet and TV. By so doing circumvented the over seeing institutions such as the FSCA and others who were put in place to guard against such illegal interventions.

    These individuals and institutions became the protected so-called investor specialists after the default as a result of legal and financial technicalities and loopholes. We were not only inticed to part with our life savings but they also robbed us from our dignity as well as humiliating us whilst we trusted them in good faith with our hard earned savings. These funds were desperately needed by us to survive during our twighlight years. I am also convinced that this product was never offered to their families and close friends. I firmly believe that their time will come soon.

    Like so many if us this scam completely depleted my entire survival expectations.

    While we are now observing how we were lured in by these heartless individuals and organisation, there are similar financial attractions advertised by means of television etc. offering interest earnings of 9 - 11 plus % just as we were caught at the time we invested. Interest rates that far exceeding the general norms and I can not help wondering if the overseeing institutions are taking appropriate action to investigate these offers in order to protect our retired citizens and others from burning their fingers as well. It appears as if one can no longer trust or depend on any of these offers.

    Hi all,

    If you want, you can send your details (email contact, amounts, etc.) to me:
    I think we should at least try to compile a list of everyone involved, if you know of others please forward their details too.
    I'm not a representative, just an investor like all of you who have lost a lot.

    Terence Gregory (former CEO) already has some legal action going, but he needs all the help he can get! He's also lost a lot just like us, since he's put everything he had into Ecsponent.

      Hi Deon, I personally spoke to the Advocate dealing with the JSE, your information is not correct. They have only acknowledged his correspondence no other report was given to him as of today.

      Good day,
      Someone should draw up a petition for all the investers to sign. Perhaps you could do that or maybe know someone that could? We need to stop George.
      Thank you.

    If the Odinary Shareholders allow this vote to go ahead, they should now stop complaining!!!!!! Write the money amount on your tummy, go bath and wash it off, really SERRRIOUSLY, they want to convert every 100 cent into a rand, math is math, however you will be given R2.00 for every 200 shares.... the bonus is they will then not owe you anything, as the share price will drop. No shares can trade at under 1cent, so now your R2.00 will become 1cent.... the joke is on the Shareholders....VOTE NO!!!!!!!!NO NO NO NO......

      Hi Jienie,

      Do you have more information about what actually transpired at Ecsponent?
      I talked to Floris on several occasions, but now that he's barred, who is actually held liable and is there a committed plan of action from "them" to get the money back?

      I want to actually just arrive at their office and demand to speak to someone in charge!
      As everyone says, they are completely incommunicado...
