The painting 'Salvator Mundi' by Leonardo da Vinci at Christie's. Credit Drew Angerer/Getty Images

After 19 minutes of dueling, with four bidders on the telephone and
one in the room, Leonardo da Vinci’s “Salvator Mundi” sold on
Wednesday night for $450.3 million with fees, shattering the high for
any work of art sold at auction. It far surpassed Picasso’s “Women of
Algiers,” which fetched $179.4 million at Christie’s in May 2015. The
buyer was not immediately disclosed.

Mugabe, Second-Longest Serving African Head, Risks Ouster: Chart @business
Law & Politics

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, who at age 93 is the world’s
oldest-serving leader, risks being forced from office after the
military seized control of the southern African nation. Mugabe’s
tenure as president spans 37 consecutive years, the second-longest
after Equatorial Guinea’s Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who took
power eight months before him.

Bitcoin Surges in Zimbabwe After Military Moves to Seize Power
Law & Politics

Bitcoin climbed as much as 10 percent on Zimbabwe’s Golix exchange on
Wednesday after the country’s armed forces seized power.

The price of the cryptocurrency in the Southern African nation jumped
as high as $13,499, almost double the rate at which it trades in
international markets, according to prices cited on Golix’s website.

Demand for Bitcoin in Zimbabwe has surged amid a shortage of hard
currency. Golix processed more than $1 million of transactions in the
past 30 days, compared with turnover of $100,000 for the whole of
2016, according to data on the exchange’s website. Zimbabwe doesn’t
have its own currency, with the government adopting the U.S. dollar
and South African rand, among others, as legal tender in 2009 after
hyperinflation rendered the local dollar worthless.

Zimbabwe Equities Are Almost More Bitcoin Than Bitcoin @marcusashworth Bloomberg @Gadfly
Law & Politics

A jump of 390 percent year-to-date in the benchmark Zimbabwe
Industrial Index, which has a market capitalization of $14.5 billion
and excludes mining companies, looks fabulous news for frontier funds
invested in what used to be called Africa's bread-basket. It's held on
to those gains even as the military seizes power. It might be tempting
to watch for a dip as a buying opportunity. The problem is getting
your money out. After some serious hyperinflation, the country
abandoned its own currency in favor of the U.S. dollar in 2009, and it
has become increasingly more difficult to extract capital. Foreign
investors have been trapped in their holdings for most of this year,
unable to exit or cash in what look like huge profits. Stocks have
become Zimbabwe's version of Bitcoin. Meanwhile, Bitcoin's version of
Zimbabwe seems to be having a good day.

The 60% fall from 2013 to 2016 reflects concerns about the real
economy, but the recent jump reflects a panic for liquid assets

It's a similar picture for the MSCI Zimbabwe index, which has jumped
420 percent this year. The index consists of just two companies; a
drinks conglomerate called Delta Corporation Ltd. and Econet Wireless
Zimbabwe Ltd.There is a serious scarcity of cash, and bank deposits,
in Zimbabwe's broken economy. Equities are the only viable means of
exchange, but this has pushed prices through the roof.The country's
shares are trading at a 475 percent premium to cash, according to an
Exotix analysis of Old Mutual data. That difference has to collapse
for there to be any chance of Zimbabwe normalising.

Until Zimbabwe allows for the return of capital, only the very
well-informed, or the very brave, should think about diving in.

In Topsy-Turvy Zimbabwe, Stocks May Plunge If Confidence Returns @business
Law & Politics

If investors want a sign that confidence is returning to Zimbabwe
following the armed forces’ seizure of power from President Robert
Mugabe on Wednesday morning, they should look for stocks to fall.

In Zimbabwe’s dysfunctional market, the deeper the economy has sunk,
the more equities have soared. The nation’s main gauge is up 322
percent in the past year in dollars, the best performance globally,
even as a cash shortage choked businesses and forced people to sleep
in streets near banks so they could make withdrawals in the mornings.

Tencent Rises After Posting Fastest Revenue Growth in 7 Years
World Currencies

Tencent Holdings Ltd. rose in Hong Kong after posting accelerating
sales growth and topping the most optimistic of analyst estimates.

The shares rose as much as 2.7 percent to HK$393.40 in early trading,
on pace for a record close. The owner of WeChat, the social network
that is nearly ubiquitous in China, reported a 61 percent rise in
third-quarter sales on Wednesday. Fueled by advertising and hit game
Honour of Kings, the growth was the fastest since 2010, when revenue
was a mere one-fourteenth of its current level.

By getting WeChat onto almost a billion smartphones in China, Tencent
has leveraged the instant message service into an entertainment and
gaming platform that is driving advertising sales. Although the
Shenzhen-based company remains largely absent overseas, it’s built a
12 percent stake in Snapchat-owner Snap Inc. and is exploring new
sources of growth in the cloud, financial services, movies and music.

WeChat had 980 million monthly active users, up almost 16 percent from
the previous year and now sending 38 billion messages daily. But the
mobile version of QQ, Tencent’s other mainstay social network, had 2.5
percent fewer users at the end of the quarter.

The success of Honour of Kings helped expand smartphone gaming revenue
by 84 percent in the period. While the game was recently dethroned
from the top of China’s iOS store, Tencent has a full pipeline of
titles for 2018 that includes several from South Korean developers
that were held back amid political tensions with China.

Angola's Dos Santos Family Under Pressure to Give Up Key Posts

The children of former Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos are
facing increasing pressure to step down from key posts, two months
after the first leadership change in Africa’s second-biggest oil
producer in almost four decades.

Since replacing Dos Santos at the helm of Angola in September, Joao
Lourenco, 63, has fired the governor of the central bank, the head of
diamond company Endiama and the boards of all three state-owned media
companies. The string of dismissals has earned Lourenco the nickname
“relentless remover.”

Now, the two most prominent children of the Dos Santos clan have come
under fire for acting as barriers to reforms because of the huge sway
they hold over sub-Saharan Africa’s third-biggest economy. Dos Santos’
eldest daughter, Isabel, 44, is Africa’s richest woman and chairwoman
of state oil company Sonangol, in a country where crude accounts for
more than 90 percent of exports. Her brother, Jose Filomeno, 39, is
the head of Angola’s $5 billion sovereign wealth fund.

“They’re clearly under a lot of pressure to step down,” Gary van
Staden, an analyst at NKC African Economics in Paarl, South Africa,
said by phone. “Whether Lourenco aims to clean up the place or simply
make it cosy for himself, the Dos Santos family is always going to be
in the line of fire because of the key positions they hold in Angola.”

Yet, the 63-year-old former army general has signaled he is nobody’s
marionette. In his state of the union speech on Oct. 16, Lourenco
vowed to fight corruption and end monopolies in the cement sector.
Isabel’s husband, Sindika Dokolo, is the chairman of one of the
biggest cement factories in Angola.

Lourenco also appointed Carlos Saturnino, who was fired from Sonangol
by Dos Santos last year, as his secretary of state for oil, putting
him in charge of a 30-day review of the industry.

After expanding for 14 consecutive years, the economy posted zero
growth last year in a country where more than a third of the
population of 27 million lives on less than $2 a day, according to the
World Bank.

“The country can’t wait for better days,” Lourenco said in a speech on
Nov. 11. Recent changes at the central bank and other state-owned
companies were designed to increase control of government bodies that
may be “decisive during this difficult moment in the economy,” he

Apart from her job at Sonangol, Isabel dos Santos also controls
Unitel, Angola’s largest mobile-phone company. She owns Candando, a
supermarket chain, has stakes in Angolan lenders Banco BIC and BFA and
several companies in Portugal. Her brother, Jose Filomeno, has also
come under fire for the way he has managed Angola’s sovereign wealth

Swiss newspaper Le Matin Dimanche reported on Nov. 5 that the wealth
fund’s asset manager, Jean Claude Bastos de Morais, was a friend of
Jose Filomeno and has been convicted in Switzerland for
misappropriation of funds.

The report, based on the so-called Paradise Papers, also said most of
the fund’s money was transferred to offshore accounts in Mauritius and
some of it was used to pay companies controlled by Bastos de Morais
for projects in Angola. The wealth fund, known as FSDEA, denied the
allegations in an emailed statement and said all of its operations are

The state-owned Jornal de Angola newspaper ran a story on the report
and Radio Nacional de Angola, the government broadcaster, provided
details about the article and the denial of any wrongdoing. Angola’s
main opposition party on Nov. 10 called for a parliamentary inquiry
into the management of the fund.

“In the past, a story like this would only appear in the social
media,” said Precioso Domingos, a professor of economics at the
Catholic University in the capital, Luanda. “But pressure to put an
end to some of the interests of the Dos Santos family is so great that
these stories are now being picked up by the state media.”

.@KenyaAirways completes $2 bln debt restructuring @ReutersAfrica
Kenyan Economy

The airline’s top shareholder, the Kenyan government, and 11 local
lenders converted the bulk of their debts into shares, helping to
relieve cash flow pressure.

“This has been a $2 billion restructuring,” Mbuvi Ngunze, the former
Kenya Airways CEO who has been advising on the transaction since June,
told Reuters.

As part of its assistance to the company’s revival efforts, the
government also offered contingent guarantees for $750 million of the
airline’s debt for 10 years.

“We will pay less now to allow us a bit of time to reshape the
business to pay a bit more on the tail end,” Ngunze said, referring to
the debt restructuring.

Kenya Airways, which is part owned by Air France KLM, posted the
country’s biggest ever annual corporate loss of 26 billion shillings
($251 million) in its 2016 financial year, hit by a slump in travel
and high financing costs after buying new Boeing planes.

The losses pushed the company into negative equity of 45 billion
shillings in its financial year to the end of March.

Ngunze said he expects that to move into positive territory next year
after the restructuring.

The financial restructuring diluted all existing shareholders by 95 percent.

Kenya Airways is set to brief investors on the first half of its
financial year on Friday.
