The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ), Director General, Gift Machengete, has said that postal and courier services as still relevant in the modern world. In recent years the volume of postal and courier services has continued to decline due to technological advancement. The advent of the internet, social media platforms and mobile telecommunication has rendered postal services almost obsolete. Speaking at the World Post Day Celebrations held in Mudzi last Friday, Machengete said
Let us celebrate trust, reliability and security as trademarks of postal services worldwide. Let us celebrate the postman and post-woman who carried all the sorrows, good news, all the worries and all the hopes. Postal services have created the world, changed the world and brought us where we are today.
