Zambia’s Transport, Works, Supply and Communications Minister Christopher Yaluma has reportedly suggested that the government is open to idea of licensing a fourth mobile network operator, AllAfrica reports. The minister is cited as claiming that the introduction of another player would help the industry thrive, while also calling on the country’s existing cellcos to expand coverage further in rural and remote areas of the country, in order that more citizens had access to mobile voice services. ‘This service is not a luxury anymore, it is a necessity, people need to have a tool of communicating to loved ones, this is something that we should give to each and every Zambian,’ Mr Yaluma noted.
