Mighty Warriors – Zimra stand-off over Samsung Galaxy S7 phones


The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) are still holding on to a Samsung Galaxy S7 consignment belonging to the Mighty Warriors and keep requesting more paperwork before they clear the handsets meant for the players.

The mobile handsets, which were availed to every athlete at the Olympics Games in Rio in August, were confiscated when they entered the country with Zimbabwe Olympic Committee officials as a single package.

Samsung Electronics distributed 12 500 mobile phones to all the 2016 Olympians.


But the Mighty Warriors missed out on collecting their phones at Samsung Galaxy Studio at the Olympics Village in Rio de Janeiro as individuals since they were based in Sao Paulo.

The Government has been involved in trying to facilitate the release of the phones but three months later it appears there is no solution in sight.

The revenue collector keeps demanding more paper work yet they were furnished with documentation from the International Olympics Committee that the gadgets were given to all the Olympians because of a partnership between the IOC and Samsung.
