"While waiting to receive a copy of the said CONAC report, the Management of MTN Cameroon wishes to reassure its stakeholders that MTN Cameroon IS NOT AND HAS NEVER BEEN implicated in corruption-related actions, in the exercise of its activities," says Sibiya.

The CEO added that MTN Cameroon is a responsible investor and is up to date with regard to its fiscal obligations to the relevant authorities in Cameroon, in accordance with all applicable rules and regulations.
