Companies need 30 per cent black ownership to place a bid.However, ICASA faces potential legal action from the country’s government, which might mean the sale does not go ahead as planned.The ownership rule is part of South Africa’s push to improve black ownership of industries, addressing an issue that is a hangover from the apartheid era.Vodacom is currently 19 per cent owned by black investors, compared with 39 per cent for MTN Group Ltd. Both companies are based in Johannesburg. Money Tags Richard Handford last_img read more
