ISSUE 240: ZIMBABWE PHONE BOOM HAS HEALED ECONET vs CELSYS RIFT

I would like to point out that your report entitled: ZIMBABWE PHONE BOOM HAS HEALED ECONET vs CELSYS RIFT is in fact inaccurate with respect to Celsys being ‘forced to resolve its long standing dispute with Econet’.

The facts are that the dispute between Econet and Celsys went to arbitration last year and was recently resolved amicably, and that both parties are currently exploring other new business possibilities together. No one was forced into any arrangement. Celsys has enjoyed and continues to enjoy a good relationship with all three networks in Zimbabwe.
