#24 because of you

The number 24 is a big number and associated with ongoing growth. Teenagers look forward to jumping the number 21 and consider themselves grown thereafter. A few years before the early millennium we had a telecommunications giant setup shop in Botswana and has been in operation since, Mascom Wireless.

The time was set and all ripe for a mobile telecommunications service provider to setup shop in Botswana and connect Batswana and that is exactly what Mascom did. In 1998, Botswana saw the setting up of her first mobile telecommunications service provider which has maintained it’s number 1 position since then. The company has been on an aggressive expansion drive around the country setting up shops to serve their clients. Over the years, technological advancements, expansions and innovations have been the norm within the walls and staff of Mascom wireless to date.

Yesterday, Kasane residents witnessed the official opening of the 24th shop in Botswana at the Waterfront mall, Kasane with the Assistant Minister of Presidential Affairs, Governance & Public Administration Hon. Machana Shamukuni. The Hon. Minister who also doubles up as a Member of Parliament for the Chobe region was happy to join Mascom in their unveiling of the revamped shop which is bigger, better and now employs more staff than it did before. The Honourable Minister expressed his gratitude to the telecommunication giant’s efforts to improve the lives of people in Kasane and surrounding areas. He further applauded the company for the many efforts carried out across the country with a highlight of the e-schools project, the company’s Wi-Fi internet connectivity project in all government schools.

Mascom senior management also alluded to the fact that they are honoured to have had the Honourable Minister grace their official opening and fro also encouraging them to continue doing more in the communities they operate in. The Mascom staff in Kasane were also introduced to the general public, pledging their support to the people of Kasane in all the telecommunication services they need. A quick tour of the newly opened shop was done with all the dignatories in attendance.
