Net*One sets up base at Zanu PF conference

HARARE - The State’s fixed mobile phone operator Net*One hurriedly set up a base station at the Zanu PF conference centre in Gweru yesterday  to improve reception for thousands of delegates expected to attend the opening day today.

The Zanu PF conference venue, 10km out of Gweru along the Mvuma Road, has no cellphone coverage.
 
But by midday yesterday, the area was covered with a full strength Net*One signal.

Most government officials use the State run mobile phone service.

The venue has been spruced up, with the conference centre, boasting Great Zimbabwe monument designs, under final touches.

Huge tents have been pitched, with bitumen ramped to the floor surface to prepare against rain.

It has been raining heavily for the past three days in the Midlands capital, raising fears the conference venue, surrounded by a grape vineyard, will be washed out.

The conference roars to life today, capped by an opening address by President Robert Mugabe.
