Powertel misses deadline

Powertel misses deadline
Published: 07 March 2014

The sale of prepaid electricity tokens through state-owned enterprises has failed to take-off amid reports that PowerTel and its technical partner E-Solutions are struggling to provide a solution for the roll-out of the project.

The roll-out of third party prepaid electricity vending system, that was expected to begin on February 28, is expected to make tokens readily available to consumers.

It emerged that PowerTel, which was "handpicked" by the Ministry of Energy and Power Development to create distribution networks for the sale of the tokens does not have the technical capacity to provide the required solution.

The Zesa subsidiary has only one outlet in Harare.

The distribution networks would have seen the tokens being sold through NetOne, Telone, CBZ, ZB, Agribank, Zimpost, POSB and Petrozim.
