Tanzania has increasing potential as a local hub for content and entertainment, and our partnership with Halotel opens up new opportunities for us in this market. Mondia’s ability to create end-to-end solutions, including premium content and digital payments, bodes well for our ability to continue to play a strong leadership role in the next chapter of digitilisation in Africa.”
