- UAE-based telecoms group Etisalat is ‘interested’ in purchasing a stake in Beninese state-backed mobile operator Libercom, according to ‘a source familiar with the matter’ quoted by Agence Ecofin. The unnamed source added that Etisalat could be ready to make a bid for Libercom sometime in the second quarter of this year – after the completion of the group’s pending takeover of Morocco’s Maroc Telecom.
