With One Voice, Love and Togetherness Zambia will be never same….. Am a proud Zamtel customer

  4. This ZAMTEL was going to be on top of three mobile providers had it not been the late illiterate MCS decision to reposses it from LAPGREEN . He was just another populist pundit without economic clue that it has made the work of ECL difficult. Ecl’s work has further been exacerbated by having no political will to turn around the economy by appointing competent personnel in critical positions. We are really in for it.Ecl must calm down and concentrate on building the economy other than fighting HH.Let him stop this police brutality.

    • The Decision by His Excellency MSC (MHSRIP)to reverse the Dubious Sales our only indigenous telecom company was exceptional, all we need to do is support this Company to grow beyond the projected figure so that, it can have enough to invest in the expansion of the network for the betterment of every Zambian.
