Issues previously raised by readers of Bambazonke Nhasi:
Concession are available for 75 years olds and above, but only for home radio/TV use – not for vehicles. To obtain this concession you have to go to ZBC Pockets Hill with a copy of your ID (proof of your pensionable age) and Proof of Residence. Visit the reception at Pockets Hill and someone there will help you.Regarding vehicles which have Japanese radios that do not catch local radio signal or non-working radios, according to ZBC the law states: “anyone in possession of a radio” - it does not differentiate whether it is in working condition or not, so regardless you have to hold a licence if you own a radio visible to the public in your vehicle
