Gtel Director Jumps Over to Huawei!


Its a dog eat dog game as one of the top three mobile phone players in Zimbabwe, has literally “Stolen” human resource prowess, seeing the man behind the successful Gtel brand jump ship to join an international power brand and the third world`s biggest phone manufacture, Huawei.

#MondayBlues as we had earlier on hinted, caught the guy in action behind the Chinese brand, at the recently help Permican awards where he officially spoke for the brand, letting the cat out of the bag.

Robert Gonye joins huawei
It is no brainer, this is obviously an upgrade on his profile as Robert Gonye, the ex-marketing director for Gtel has frantically tried to keep it a secret, we recently confirmed he has now joined their erstwhile strong competitor as the new country sales and marketing terminal manager.

We are not sure if this was the Chinese-based mobile manufacture`s initiative or probably he sold his very successful CV to Huawei, either way, Robert Gonye who recently left Gtel Zimbabwe is now officially with Huawei Zimbabwe.

Reliable sources had informed us that one of the state owned enterprises was seriously eyeing him, but they took too long to regularise the transaction leading him to take the opportunity from the international giant as presented.

We are not sure how he is set to turn around the fortunes of the Chinese based mobile manufacturer, which internationally is ranked as a powerhouse, the third world`s largest mobile manufacture while in Zimbabwe, a brand like Gtel is even well known competing with newer brands like Astro.

Speaking to Johnson Yangsen of Huawei Zimbabwe, He said that Robert Gonye joined Huawei in August, as the country`s sales terminal manager and we are looking forward to expanding Huawei awareness and sales in the country.

Robert added his voice that it is interesting to work with an international company like Huawei, and growth in that dimension is very important to me, as an individual i’m associated with growth and will always look forward to impacting.

Huawei Zimbabwe said, “We are here to make a serious impact on the market, very soon they will be a local device launch.”

  1. Perhaps he was sick and tired of lying to his LOYAL customers THAT “GTEL SOLD OVER 900k PHONES” LOL. i will not trust Robert .

  2. Toneo1st Editor, we need a MONDAY BLUES on the origins of the GTEL , if you are a true Techie you will know whgere it comes from and how much it costs.

  3. We call that moving from Glory To Glory. Huawei should be careful with this nomadic type of people, next he will move to Samsung and apple.

  4. This is a good move for him and he has proved his worth by acquiring a top job from an international brand, the guy who is taking over from where he left at Gtel has got a mountain to climb, trying to fill in the shoes left by Robert, then face behind Gtel

  5. @ junta i think a lair will always be one. if you are saying that guy was lying on behalf of Gtel, what will stop him from lying on behalf the Chinese. For years he failed dismally to tell the whole country tht Gtel is coping a Chinese brand.

  6. @junta it seems you have something to tell us, can you please tell the nation and inform us of some staff we are ignorant of,

  7. School of thought that is not Glory, its just a change of environment, fine its an upgrade on his profile not a Glory, LOL
