    Pro tip . Buy first before encouraging anybody to buy. Looking forward to April. Possible dividend since last year's loss was due to debt expense

    why the shares price drop down drastically ?

    1. Michael KwayisiMichael Kwayisi

      The drop on July 29 was because the stock was trading cum-special dividend of KSh 8 until the close of day on July 28. Now with a significant disposal of its stake in several companies (which prompted the aforementioned dividend) investors seem to have lost confidence in the company.
