Mwanza orders phone colours off buildings

From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

MWANZA City Council has issued a year's notice to four mobile phone companies to remove the paint on walls and roofs of both residential and commercial buildings in the city without the council’s authorization.

The companies are alleged to have painted the walls and roofs in the unauthorised paints, apparently in their bid to advertise their respective services to the public to lure them -- Zantel, Tigo, Vodacom and Celtel.

The Mwanza City Council Executive Director, Mr Wilson Kabwe, has confirmed that the aforesaid mobile services providers advertising through the green, blue and orangecoloured paints have been banned from painting the city buildings in their paints.The ban was made after a talk between Mr Kabwe and the companies representatives, held in Kabwe’s office.
