FRANCISTOWN: Mascom Wireless has sponsored Francistown’s 120 years jubilee match, which will feature Zimbabwe’s Highlanders and TAFIC, for P106,000.
The match takes place on Saturday at the Francistown Sports Complex at 3pm. Mascom’s chief public relations and communication officer, Tebogo Lebotse-Sebego said they were concerned about not having a signature event here as they do in other places such as Maun and Gaborone.

“We are keen on having a Mascom activity in all the major places across the country and we don’t have that in Francistown. We are happy to be part of these celebrations,” she said.
The celebrations’ Local Organising Committee chairperson, Kebaabetswe Bogatsu said they are privileged to have Mascom on board. “We are proud that Mascom has agreed to support us and we will be partners in this match.”
