(Business in Cameroon) - In the telecom sector, mobile operator MTN Cameroon is the most affected by the crisis that has been hitting Cameroon’s Anglophone regions since 2017.

“Our performance [...] is heavily hit by the crisis in the northwest and southwest where MTN owns 60% of its market shares in the telecommunications sector,” the Managing Director Hendrik Kasteel said January 31, 2019 in Douala.

Another MTN official, Massey Njiti Bongang, the company’s corporate communications manager, told NewsWatch late 2018 that in the Anglophone regions, “a total of 206 MTN sites have been ransacked since April 2018, or have been out of order due to issues with accessing them because of the insecurity”.
