East Chiefs hail Zamtel for towers roll out

Share

Some traditional leaders in Eastern Province have commended Zamtel for aggressively rolling out its network coverage across the Province.

Chief Sandwe of the Nsenga speaking people and Chief Nyampande of Petauke said the expansion of network coverage in their chiefdoms has brought development to the people.

The two traditional leaders were speaking separately when a delegation from Zamtel led by Chief Executive Officer Sydney Mupeta and Msanzala Member of Parliament Peter Daka paid courtesy calls.

Through his Representative Joyce Mwanza, Chief Nyampande said Petauke being an agricultural district, farmers will now be able negotiate better prices using their mobile phones.

He implored Zambians to support Zamtel since it’s an indigenous mobile phone service provider.

And Chief Sandwe noted that the days of people in his chiefdom climbing on top of hills to make a phone call are now over.

He said the schools in the area are also able to use internet to deploy learning which is helping improve access and quality of education.

Mr Sandwe also thanked President Edgar Lungu for initiating several developmental projects in the area including the communication towers project.

And Zamtel Chief Executive Officer Sydney Mupeta said the communication towers project that his firm has been implementing is nearing completion.

Mr Mupeta said so far, 790 new towers have been erected across the country with the remaining few to be installed before end of 2021.

  1. So you are telling us they are still erecting cheap Chinese towers after all that Chinese money that they got surely how long should it take to put up a tower that is probably solar powered….and the dull chief doesnt know its his money they are using to repay the China Bank.
    In this day and age you have such bicycles with such brakes and zero gears.

  2. BA TARINO ORANGE, my brother/sister I may be wrong however it’s most probably that you live in the UK. What I can tell you is that maybe more 75% of what you use or even eat are from China. The new network transmission lines and communication towers are all made in China. China is now in the lead- the SUPERPOWER if you like. Not even the USA can yap sh!!!!t at China. It is that simple.

    If you want communication towers made in Zambia bweleni ku Zambia mukwafwako kukule calo. At this point in time it’s only Japan that can claim not having any thing (or less) to do with China. Let us just copy and work hard like China in order to develop our continent. Zambia has done well in the last few years if you have never been there in five to ten years.
