Mobile money payments platform TeleCash will no longer be processing payments for DStv starting from Tuesday the 28th of February 2017. Telecel Zimbabwe, the parent company of Telecash, sent SMS messages to its customers notifying them of this development saying:
Due to factors beyond our control, DSTV payments on Telecash will cease on 28 February 2017, till further notice. All other services remain available
EcoCash Zimbabwe also pulled a similar move at the beginning of the year, although Ecocash introduced a Rand Wallet which can still make payments. TeleCash did not reveal reasons for the move apart from citing factors beyond their control.
