Monday 17 August 2015 | 12:14 CET | News
Zimbabwean mobile phone manufacturer G-Telecoms has signed a contract phone partnership with Airtel Kenya after a snub by Safaricom, which it had approached when it entered the country about three months ago. Under the deal, G-Telecoms will sell contract phones to customers who will be connected to the Airtel network and will pay for the handsets in monthly instalments. Buyers of G-Tel smartphones will get pre-set airtime, SMS and data bundles for use every month, the Business Daily reported.
