Speaking at the handover ceremony TelOne Managing Director Mrs Chipo Mtasa said it is TelOne’s hope that the token will go a long way to cover some of the expenses for the netball team.

“We hope that with what we have given you, other corporates will come in and also add on…if another corporate also comes in and do their bit another one will also come in, before you know it, we will have more than enough for our team to really do us proud there in Liverpool,” she said.

“We really want the gold medal but in case you don’t get it you would still have done us proud just by merely going to Liverpool.We are very proud of what you have done.”

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation Dr Thokozile Chitepo wo was the Guest of Honour said the donation would go a long way in assisting the team and invited other corporates to chip in.

“We are pleased that TelOne has responded to the plea of netball and as Government, we are hoping that many other corporates and individuals will come on board and support this particular cause,” said Chitepo.

In her acceptance speech, Zimbabwe Netball Association President Mrs Chipandu expressed gratitude to TelOne for the gesture citing that the team was struggling to make ends meet.

“We are so grateful for this kind gesture. Our journey to Liverpool has not been an easy one but we are determined to make it,” said Mrs Chipandu.
