Zimbabwe’s biggest mobile network, Econet Wireless, has now received approval to sell prepaid electricity, a development expected to bring significant convenience for buyers. About 95 percent of Zesa Holdings’ prepaid electricity revenue is generated through the subsidiary, Powertel’s vending system.
ZESA spokesman Fullard Gwasira said,
Econet has been added to the list of agents approved to sell prepaid electricity. They indicated that they should be ready to start trading today (yesterday). This will bring significant convenience for customers considering Econet’s reach countrywide.
