Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini is planning to launch a new mobile network in South Africa next month.
Bayede Mobile will be available to a limited number of rural communities in KwaZulu-Natal.
The network will leverage existing infrastructure of some of South Africa’s biggest mobile networks.
The Bayede Group says it will bring reliable connectivity at an affordable flat rate.
King Zwelithini is partnering with the founders of JR Capital. The signal for the network would be hosted on
Cell C and MTN.
Zwelithini is SA’s most highly financially supported king and has many business interests trading under the name of Bayede, including wine, property and tourism businesses.
