The CEO of Wari, Kabirou Mbodji, is settling accounts. In an interview with L’Observateur, he accuses the State of having prevented the takeover of Tigo by Wari.
The businessman points to a former Prime Minister and accuses him of having orchestrated schemes with his brother-in-law to break up the purchase of Tigo by Wari.
Kabirou says that they have denigrated outrageously to offer Tigo on a platter to Xavier Niel of Free, in a consortium where « a Senegalese presented himself as the alternative to collect crumbs.
« (…) In Senegal, local initiatives are targeted in order to restrict or even destroy them, to the benefit of foreign interests, to the detriment of the collective interest of our countries. This has been going on since the dawn of time when our own brothers sold ours to the colonists in return for payment (…) », he hammered.
He added: « In Senegal, we deplore the fact that the state has not taken the measure of the consequences of the multiple attacks against Wari which are the cause of the loss of tens of thousands of jobs.
