The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (Potraz) has spoken out in defence of Econet Wireless Zimbabwe. The mobile network operator is being accused of stealing ideas by some entrepreneurs. A Potraz official who spoke to 263Chat said,
As you are aware, Potraz has been rolling out consumer awareness campaigns across the country through roadshows. Therefore, we are empowering every consumer with knowledge and also know the channels of laying complaints against operators. In this regard, when we hear unproven accusations against Econet, we cant just jump and approach them with accusations which are not backed by evidence. Bring forward tangible evidence first before fueling street grapevine.
