      Great South African company making shed loads of money in Nigeria. MTN needs the billions it expatriates from Nigeria to its home country.

      And please don’t come here and act like there wouldn’t be xenophobic rallies and protests on your streets if it were a Nigerian company doing the same thing in South Africa and setting itself up as your telecoms giant. You would have found a way to burn the building down by now…

    This is a very nice gesture on MTN’s part. My concern however, is that we have a very bad maintenance habit in Nigeria. In two years, all these beds and equipments will be broken and then back to square one.
