Celtel’s managing editor, David Hunter announced last week that it will be investing USD30 million in Sierre Leone. He also disclose that Celtel has now secured a licence to operate in neighbouring Liberia. The company in Sierre Leone will employ 150 Sierra Leoneans. 2.5 million users are connected to Celtel and Port Loko, Kambia , Lunsar and the Freetown peninsular will soon join that number.
Hunter described the reasons for the change in the company’s logo. In order to give it what the officials describe as, " a pan Africanist" outlook, ‘Lets talk’ has been changed to, "Making life better" and the primary colours of red and yellow have replaced the white and blue that were first associated with the company.
