    • Does Zambia Airports Corporation Limited (ZACL) need help where do the take that airport tax? Think Think they would have made twice as much in leasing that space to the highest bidder for 24 months but no one in Zambia Airports Corporation Limited wants to use their heads.

    • The could have made the coin operated to force travellers to look for charge in their shops hence encouraging them to spend…but they simply sold out the whole deal and sat back like *****.

    • *correction*
      They could have made them coin operated so as to force travellers to look for change in their shops hence encouraging them to spend…but they simply sold out the whole deal and sat back like *****. You have to encourage people to send more like what a shopping mall does…

  2. Who is the CEO of Zambia Airports Corporation Limited (ZACL) is he/she that dumb even where you do not need a handout you are eager to accept one…Zambia Airports Corporation Limited themselves would have invested that $130,000 in blank trolleys and advertised that space for a limited time instead of Vodafone buying them for an specified time period. That’s like letting an advertiser buying his own billboards and placing them in your stadium and cutting out competition. Remember that Zambia Airports Corporation Limited are undergoing reconstruction that space would have been highly sought after by advertisers…but then again in Zambia we have Managers who simply turn up for work.

    • Jay Jay you are assuming ZAC has the $130K…which is not likely the case. That said, I do get your point in ZAC exploring alternative, sustainable income streams especially with the ongoing revamp-extension of the airport.

      RE Vodafone, I would have been more impressed if they instead decided to provide free broad-band internet at the airport. Atleast that is core to their business and would have also been a platform to advise the quality of their service

    • It all boils down to negotiating ZAC would have free 1 hour internet like JKIA in Nairobi if they managers were business savvy. They could have negotiated a deal with the trolley company as well…Yes ZAC has $130,000 it collects $10 tax from every passenger who passes through..
      This is why I always state that this organisation needs to disolved let the Airports compete for business and traffic like they do in England.

  3. Why is Vodafone associating itself with characters like Robinson ?
    are there not aware that he is killing the airport business in Zambia ?
    That he is sponsoring the Ps and other official to fly on airport funds.

  4. NOW THE QUESTION IS, ARE THESE TROLLEYS BEING MANUFACTURED IN ZAMBIA AND IF NOT WHY NOT? BECAUSE THESE TROLLEYS WITH THE SAME STANDARDS AND QUALITY CAN BE MANUFACTURED IN ZAMBIA BY COMPANIES SUCH AS LENCO, SHONGA STEEL OR THE LIKES IF THE ABOVE MENTIONED COMPANIES PACKED UP. BETTER STILL THIS IS WHERE IDC CAN ALSO VENTURE INTO- DESIGNING AND MANUFACTURING SUCH EASY TO MAKE PRODUCT AND DIVERSIFYING INTO MORE COMPLEX MOTOR-DRIVEN PRODUCTS. WHAT ARE MFEZs FOR ANYWAY?

  6. Vodafone is marketing its product for free to every foreigner that arrives in Zambia. Forbes claims its worth over 87 billion and the organisation is still trying to penetrate foreign markets. It was to partner with Verizon for another whopping $130 billion. The issue with us Africans is a lack of education. We are giving away things for free on a silver platter. It costs businesses about $10,000 to $20,000 a month abroad to advertise in a newspaper. That $130,000 investment is actually less than what they owe us. On top of that they are using university students to sell their product without paying them salaries and commission. This is a pyramid scheme and students will not make money and only the organisation will benefit. Look at those Zambians smiling while being duped!
