Thursday 5 January 2017 | 10:12 CET | News
The Tanzanian government says it expects 89 telecommunications companies to list at the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE), The Citizen reported. The Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) said only three firms, namely Vodacom Tanzania, Tigo and Airtel Tanzania, have so far submitted their prospectuses to the Capital Markets and Securities Authority (CMSA) as an initial step towards listing at the DSE. TCRA Director General James Kilaba said this means that the CMSA has yet to hear from 86 companies.
