The government is asking Indian companies to help them improve their services.
Zimbabwe.- Government officials are setting up meetings with authorities from India in order to help them improve the operation of state lotteries in Zimbabwe. Home Minister Dr Ignatius Chombo, Home Affairs Ministry Secretary Mr. Melusi Matshiya, and Lotteries and Gaming Board chief executive Mr. Heavens Gonga met with Eagle Press.
“We are here to discuss ways of revamping the State Lotteries and Gaming Board whose income has dwindled and is technically non-functional. Eagle Press is India’s top security printing and gaming company that is involved in gaming activities in more than 40 countries worldwide. We are also looking at technology to monitor in real time what is going on in our gaming and gambling enterprises throughout the country,” said Chombo.
The Home Minister said that they wish to review and improve on betting, racing and State Lotteries, taking advantage of new technologies available nowadays. Both parties of the country are seeking to monitor the progress that they’re made since the implementation of a Memorandum of Understanding between Eagle Press and state lotteries from India back in 2014.
“Focus on market dynamics and marketing wizardry will be done. Exhibition of the contemporary innovative lottery technology, which includes examination of the equipment, simulation or demonstration and customization or adaptation to suit the Zimbabwe market are on the list of our program,” he concluded.
