Zamtel crazy engaged line message

Postby Mweemba » 7th October 2010, 16:27

Dear Zambia,

Have you heard the new recorded message on the Zamtel land lines when the line is engaged? It is voiced by a Chinese as follows (am not exaggerating, try dialing your own number and listen).

"Sorry now the sek-you-tee is bee-ze. Please dao le-ta".

Has Zamtel run out of Zambians to voice the message?

I want to listen to this disgraceful thing. But please give me your word that if I click on that mp3 link, there are no vicious viruses or malware that are piggy-back riding on it.

I downloaded, thanks. Unbelievable. The nice Zambian lady who used to talk on this recording has been fired?

Blogger,

I dont think you can put a virus in an mp3 file. Word document yes but I have never heard of a virus in an audio file.

Mweembe,

you will probably be hard pressed to find a bigger tech idiot than me on this whole planet. But I thought I heard about a decade back, when that so called loveletter virus spread world wide on computers running on Windows. It came in form of an email and once opened, it could spread in the computer and corrupt files including mp3s. That's my recollection anyway. Maybe I got the whole thing upside down.

Mweembe,

After I read that Sam downloaded the file and has lived to tell about it, I also decided to take that leap of faith. I am still here and my computer did not explode.

Anyway seriously, that voice sounds exactly like this mean looking Chinese woman at a Chinese restaurant I go to sometimes. She walks over to the table and asks if you liked her soup. She is carry a huge knife, so you are pretty much obligated to answer yes, if you want to walk out with your limbs attached.

Thanks for the info. This has got me thinking.

Kwena this in unbelievable. Looks like someone at zamtel is sleeping despite privatisation. We know the chinese invasion is unstoppable but this is too much. I am still deciding whether to be upset, depressed or to laugh after listening to the recording.

And now some of the messages are first in Chinese, and then in English (with a Chinese accent)...

Something serious is wrong with us, Zambians. Very sad. Heartbreaking. Dear Zamtel, this is no different from prostitution.
