Botswana: Kometsi Telecommunications and Demshi Investment Holdings Launch Telecoms Joint Venture

Botswana-based Kometsi Telecommunications and Namibia-based Demshi Investment Holdings have entered into a partnership agreement for the creation of a joint venture that will act as a virtual mobile network operator ( MVNO) in Botswana.

Through this collaboration, the two companies want to position themselves on the local telecom market played by Mascom, Botswana Telecommunications Corp and Orange Botswana, and still rich in business opportunities.

The signing of Demshi Investment Holdings’ partnership with Kometsi Telecommunications is in line with Namibia’s ambitions to deploy in Africa as a virtual mobile network operator.

Before Botswana, it was in Namibia that the company first expressed its desire to conquer telecoms. It is currently in negotiation with Telecom Namibia to enter this telecom market via the same model of partnership.

According to Werner Shilunga, managing director of Demshi Investment Holdings, as an MVNO, the company will focus on high-potential market segments. “The goal of Demshi is penetrating aggressively a specific market segment and, hopefully, capture a large percentage of this specific segment with innovative mobile offerings and world class customer service.” , A- he stressed.
