My favourite bit:
When MTN first bid to enter Uganda, his [the Ugandan's] government had been suspicious of letting it operate there as it appeared to be struggling to win licences at home. A great deal of due diligence was carried out on MTN by the authorities, he said.
“It took them a long time to convince us that in SA the regulations are that bad,” Nsambu said. “Your government should provide such companies with a certificate to say the companies are good but they don’t meet our requirements because we have our own regulations,” he told Mangena [our Minister of Science and Technology - admittedly the wrong Minister to tell, but who cares].
