GTel Group chief executive Chamunorwa Shumba told the Business Daily that buyers would not have to pay the whole amount for phones but would rather get monthly contract plans for both the device, data, voice among others. The firm said it had signed a deal with Kenya’s Safaricom to give Kenyans the first of its kind deal.
GTel aims to roll out A703 Vivo, SL 5.1, SL 5.5 and the Explorer 718 for as low as Sh1,999 to Sh5,999 a month. The phone firm is in South Africa, Zambia and Mozambique and Kenya will be its fourth market but it enters into Kenya where more than four mobile phone manufacturers have launched. Oppo, Obi, TECNO, Wiko and Infinix have recently launched in the market to take on Microsoft’s Lumia, Samsung, Huawei and ZTE and LG.
