Angola annuls winning tender for 4th telecoms operating license

Apr 20, 2019

Angola’s President João Lourenço annulled the winning tender for the country’s fourth telecoms operating license and ordered it be re-run to ensure “a clean and transparent process,” his office said.

The move comes less than a week after an unknown Angolan company, Telstar Telecomunicacoes, won the tender first announced shortly after Lourenço’s inauguration in 2017 and heralded then as part of an opening up of one of Africa’s most closed economies.
