The Competition Commission has recommended that the Competition Tribunal unconditionally approve MTN's proposed acquisition of a 51% stake in Afrihost. Although the Commission found vertical and horizontal overlaps in the offerings of MTN and Afrihost, it considered overall that the proposed merger is unlikely to result in a substantial prevention and lessening of competition in the hosting, ADSL and mobile data markets. The Tribunal will proceed to review the merger and the Commission's recommendation. The Commission is also currently reviewing a number of other transactions in this sector.
