A somewhat confusing report today in the government owned Sunday Mail says TelOne requires a total $76 million for fibre optic roll out. The article breaks down the $76 million into;
- Harare to Kariba – $28m
- Harare to Mutare – $7m
- Harare to Bulawayo – $15m
- Bulawayo to Victoria Falls – $15m
- Bulawayo to Beitbridge – $12m
Yes, that works out to $77m. But inside they said “at least” so…
Anyway, the report then says that actually the Harare to Mutare leg was completed in 2010. So maybe that $7m is not needed anymore? Or maybe they need to service a loan, which then means this is not for the purposes of “fibre optic roll out”? Harare to Bulawayo too is “completed” since a whole year ago it says next.. Ah! We give up. If only the government press knew how much we rely on them for what happening at government companies, they’d work harder at this.
For now, we’ll just know that TelOne just needs some money to do some fibre stuff…
