Recently Kubatana’s sister project Freedom Fone won the Index on Censorship Innovation Award. Freedom Fone facilitates the sharing of pre-recorded audio information over mobiles phones. We are consistently trying to improve the Freedom Fone software and . . . we would like you to actively help us do this.
We’ve read something published by the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) on load-shedding which raises a Lot of concerns. And if we’re concerned, we’re sure you will be too.
Listen to what they say is Fact and let us know if you think it’s Fiction. Your opinion counts!
Here’s what we need . . .
To find out more, request a free callback from Kubatana’s toll free service by following these instructions:
1) Leave a Missed Call (Beep) on +263 773 444 326.
2) Please make sure to hang up as soon as your call rings only once.
The system will record your request and queue your number for a callback.
3) When our service calls you back, you will hear some pre-recorded information. Just listen and follow the instructions as they come.
We’ll phone you back from a different number – so if you get a call from a number you don’t recognise, please answer it! If the service has received many callback requests before we get yours, or the network is congested, it may take some time before you receive your callback. If your number is busy when we call, we will try your number 3 times before we give up.
To avoid calling you late at night, we have set a daily cut off time for processing callbacks at 8:00pm. We have also instructed the system not to phone anyone on Sunday. If you do not receive your callback the same day you request it, we will try calling you again the next day that the system is making calls.
This free call back service is only available for a limited time. Please phone by 3pm Monday 11 June.
Also note, if the service is very popular, it may run out of money before we’re able to phone everyone back.
Thanks a lot from the Kubatana Team
