Tanzania accuses Vodacom

Vodacom Tanzania declined to comment. Hendi couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. Vodacom also has operations in Democratic Republic of Congo and Mozambique and is the market leader in South Africa.

Tanzania accuses Vodacom Group’s local unit, including MD Hisham Hendi, with allegedly depriving the government of more than R68-million in revenue.


Prosecutors accused the staff at Vodacom Tanzania of organising a “criminal racket”, according to documents filed to a court in the commercial capital, Dar es Salaam. The group were also charged with allowing third parties unauthorised use of network services.
Vodacom Tanzania declined to comment. Hendi couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. Vodacom also has operations in Democratic Republic of Congo and Mozambique and is the market leader in South Africa.

Vodacom’s crosstown rival MTN Group, Africa’s biggest  carrier by sales, is also no stranger to sanctions by governments and regulators around the continent. The company is facing a US$2-billion tax bill in Nigeria, its biggest market, while the head of its Uganda unit was deported earlier this year.
Hendi was named head of Vodacom Tanzania in March after months of leading the company in an acting capacity. He and other employees were arrested on a request by the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority, according to a police commander at Dar es Salaam, Lazaro Mambosasa.
