The show runs from August 19 to 27.
The motorcycles and trailers will be used as a convenient means of transporting goods and materials to various parts of the Exhibition Park before, during and after the show.
They may also be used to transport elderly people visiting the show who would be in need of such assistance and lost children who would need to be reunited with their parents.
Presenting the motorcycles and trailers to ZAS general manager, Les Mallet, Telecel’s marketing director, Obert Mandimika acknowledged the important role played by the organisers of the show in ensuring that the various show events were well-coordinated and that the needs of exhibitors and members of the public were met.
“It is hoped that the motorbikes and trailers Telecel is donating to the society will assist the show organisers in their tasks and be useful in a number of areas,” he said.
Mandimika said it was good to see that the Harare Agricultural Show, which had lost some of its lustre during the difficult hyperinflationary years, had come back to life.
“It is pleasing to note that there are 12 foreign exhibitors at this year’s show from countries in South, Central and West Africa, as well as from the Middle East, Europe and Asia,” he said.
Mandimika said Telecel, as one of the country’s leading mobile telecommunications companies, was keen to support important agricultural, business and community events such as the Harare Agricultural Show.
Last year, Telecel provided name badges and lanyards.
“I should like to assure you of Telecel’s continued support for the Harare Agricultural Show and for the excellent work that the Zimbabwe Agricultural Society does each year in providing this opportunity for businesses and other organisations to market themselves to the Harare public and in providing visitors to the show with entertainment opportunities that enable so many ordinary people to find going to the show a source of relaxation and entertainment,” Mandimika said.
