Some DStv subscribers are no longer paying for the service due to incessant power cuts in the country.
Zimbabwe embarked on a stringent load shedding schedule which sees most areas going for 18 hours a day without electricity.
Elizabeth Dziva, MultiChoice Zimbabwe spokesperson said that the company has also been affected by the power cuts like all other businesses. Said Dziva:
The current situation of power cuts in Zimbabwe is one that is beyond the control of MultiChoice Africa.
Like all suppliers of goods and services, we have been affected by the ongoing power crisis and look forward to a resolution of this problem.
Many customers have taken steps to source alternative power supplies to enable them to continue enjoying viewing DStv.
Dziva revealed that SI 142/19 does not affect Multichoice’s operations as the company is exempt from the requirement to settle all local transactions using the Zimbabwe Dollar. She added:
The business has grown hand-in-hand with local communities for the last 24 years. The new Statutory Instrument SI 142 does not affect payments to MultiChoice Africa.
DStv payments are foreign payments for a service which is being offered by a non-resident, and as such, MultiChoice Africa is exempt from this specification.
