New Delhi:
Kenya’s telecom regulator has conditionally allowed the nation’s leading operator Safaricom and a unit of India’s Bharti Airtel to acquire the assets of Essar Telecom Kenya, which operates under the brand yuMobile.

The applications by Safaricom and Airtel to acquire the assets of yuMobile have been approved subject to the three parties meeting conditions attached to the approval, the Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK) said in a statement.

‘Among the conditions are that all firms involved be current in payment of the outstanding regulatory fees,’ according to the statement. The buyers should ensure that all Yu subscribers retain their numbers and related contracts in the transition period and that Airtel submits the proposed service level agreement for subscribers acquired from Essar Telecom, it said.

The Communications Commission of Kenya  has provided a transition period of six months to allow for seamless transfer of services from Essar Telecom Ltd to the two buyers. ‘The compliance of the conditions will determine the final consent of the sale,’ it said.
