THE Patriotic Front government has with immediate effect dropped Mundia Mukubesa aka Petersen Zagaze as ZAMTEL brand ambassador replacing him with a cadre Dandy Crazy.
According to sources within Zamtel, the government owned Telecommunication Company was given instructions from an unidentified State House aid to replace Petersen with Dandy Crazy who has been singing praise songs for the Patriotic Front party.
Zamtel has currently launched a product ChiCoin CHABEBA and claims it comes with more data, minutes and free night calling.
“This offer allows all Zamtel prepaid mobile customers to buy more minutes and data bundles than any other network in Zambia at very affordable rates. The customer will be able to access the on-net offers by dialing the USSD code *422# and select option 1 for Zamtel to Zamtel offers. The offers contain midnight, Daily, weekly and monthly offers. When a customer buys a Daily, weekly or monthly offer, they get to enjoy free night calling,” Zamtel claims.
However, Zamtel is known for big jokes like this one – they will tell its clients that they have introduced this and that promotion but such don’t work.
Meanwhile, the State House source tells Kwacha Times that Petersen was dropped as Zamtel Ambassador largely because he has become a tribalist who hates people from Eastern province.
Petersen’s tribalism manifested during the U-20 AFCON 2017 when he posited on his wall that the junior Chipolopolo boys were mainly from Eastern province and Bemba land.
Petersen said that President Edgar Lungu must create Sinda district as a City like Chipata merely to award Patson Daka, Fashion Sakala, Samson Banda, Boyd Mkandawire, Sydney Phiri, Jonathan Daka, Solomon Sakala, Patrick Ngoma, Joseph Phiri etc.
The musician turned politician also coined a slogan “CHIPATA BOYS SCORING FOR ZAMBIA” urging President Lungu to gazette this slogan as an official one for the Chipolopolo boys.
