Tanzania’s state-owned telecoms monopoly the Tanzanian Telecommunications Company Limited (TTCL) will be privatized, probably within 12 months, despite opposition from its management, government officials told Reuters. Recent meetings to discuss the privatization of TTCL involved the state-owned Tanzania Communications Commission and the ministry of communications and transport. The final decision on a timetable rested with communications minister William Kusila. However, senior government officials said TTCL’s management was strongly resisting moves to sell-off the company.

TTCL officials declined to comment.
