South African businesses MTN and Shoprite closed stores in Nigeria on Wednesday (September 4) after their facilities came under attack.
Gauteng police are still looking for an unknown number of suspects following a business robbery at a Shoprite in Bram Fisherville in Soweto on Saturday.
South Africa’s Shoprite said on Monday it would appeal against a 20 million rand ($1.4 million) fine handed to its ticket-selling subsidiary by the country’s Competition Tribunal, which found agreements signed by the firm had hit competition.
South Africa’s Competition Commission on Thursday recommended Shoprite’s retail unit, which houses the country’s biggest supermarket chain, be fined 10% of its turnover for anti-competitive behaviour.
Shoprite Holdings, South Africa’s biggest supermarket chain, said on Tuesday it would pay customers for reusing its newly introduced recyclable bag as it joined domestic rivals in efforts to curb plastic pollution.
