Stanbic vs Anakazi


Over the last few years, Stanbic Bank has used the Anakazi banking platform as a vehicle towards targeting its financial support to women groups in Zambia but a row has broken out over the real owners of the brand.

It has emerged that an organisation called Anakazi Center for Women Empowerment and Development aka “Anakazi” has been branded as a business development organization supporting women in Zambia since December 2012.

What do you think? Should Stanbic stop using the name or does it not bother you as a customer?

I think if "anakazi " is a registered trademark ,then stanbic has to re-brand, but if it’s just a registered business name then they are free to used it.
