Telecel fails to pay rent, faces eviction from Harare, Gweru offices

Telecel Zimbabwe (Pvt) Ltd is in big trouble as it faces eviction from its offices after failing to pay rental arrears amounting to US$40 843.

The offices they are renting belong to First Mutual Investment Company (Pvt) Ltd .

The insurance firm has approached the High Court to force the mobile network provider to pay their rental arrears and vacate its properties in Harare and Gweru.

First Mutual Gweru said it entered into a lease agreement with Telecel on August 14, 2013, where the latter wanted to operate a base station at its premises and pay a monthly rental of US$1 000.

“In breach of the parties agreement, the defendant (Telecel) failed to pay rentals and operating costs on due dates, resulting in the cancellation of the lease agreement and the lease also expired on July 31, 2018,”
