Is There a Gap in the Definition of Corporate Mergers in Zimbabwe's Competition Act? Revisiting the Caledonia Holdings (Africa) Limited/Blanket Mine (1983) (Private) Limited Merger

Ignatious Nzero, University of Pretoria asks Is There a Gap in the Definition of Corporate Mergers in Zimbabwe's Competition Act? Revisiting the Caledonia Holdings (Africa) Limited/Blanket Mine (1983) (Private) Limited Merger.

ABSTRACT: Effective merger regulation is necessary to achieve the goals of competition law; that is, ensuring that competition is promoted and maintained in the economy through the protection of the competition process to benefit consumers in particular. The Zimbabwean Competition Act which was enacted in 1996 and became effective in 1998 as part of a comprehensive economic reform programme, aims at promoting and maintaining competition within the Zimbabwean economy. Merger regulation is central to the achievement of these goals.
