This means that you should purchase enough tokens to ensure that you can make it through the system maintenance. Strange that ZESA has scheduled the system maintenance around New Year’s which also coincides with the time of the month when everyone will be buying their ZESA tokens.

Another thing is how short notice the announcement is. It would have been prudent to warn people with enough time so they can plan around the maintenance exercise. Nevertheless here we are and we will have to contend with this, you buy tokens online with the link below:

    Joined one of your WhatsApp groups: "TechZim News & Podcasts"

    Ended up leaving. Disappointed by the way Admins tolerate objectification of women and how any meaningful conversations are drowned by high-school level, sometimes vulgar, shallow chat from Duke 2.0, Ketero, Ba Matty, Zeus etc

    No moderation.

    Yet your description says:

    "Our primary function is to share Techzim podcast and video casts, and to discuss content around technology and business.

    As there are varying experts from different sectors in the group, we can all gain from the community by engaging in meaningful discussions."


    Good luck!
