Making a contribution during a feedback dinner hosted by Econet Wireless Zimbabwe, Beitbridge Town Council secretary, Loud Ramagkapola challenged the mobile company to stop using rented premises, but build its own structures as part of developing the border town.
You are renting offices, but you have the capacity to put up buildings and invest in this strategic town. We have not even received an application for land from yourselves and we are inviting you to build here.
Econet rents a small office at a complex owned by the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority Pension Fund. In response Econet official, Otis Makahamadze highlighted its other projects such as the fibre link with South Africa which passes through the town. He however said that the invitation will be considered.
