Telecel Zimbabwe has said that there is a mischievous attempt by its detractors, circulating an old 2015 April article as a new information.
The article has been seen as nothing but unnecessary attention diversion by individuals in the industry, who are pulling out the old article to pose it as new to most unsuspecting users.
“There has been a recycled and fabricated article from 2015 alleging Telecel Zimbabwe is closing down. Please be informed this is false and must be treated as fake news. We are actually opening more of our shops and franchises following the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions by the authorities. We will keep focused on our customers as we push to deliver our renowned value in these trying times.
Thank you for your continued support over the years”
Telecel Zimbabwe was announced closed in 2015 by the then ICT minister Hon Supa Mandiwanzira over licence issues and failure to regularize as demanded by the indeginisation act.
The alleged closure did not however go through as the same government which threatened closure became the first bidder when Vimplecom the international owner of the stake decided to sell.
