The conflict between Orange Cameroon and Camtel, the public telecommunication operator which holds the monopoly over the optic fiber’s management in the country seems to have come to an end after the mobile network operator paid the sum of CFA1.6 billion to Camtel.Both companies had been at loggerheads over unpaid bills.
Camtel took its conflict with Orange Cameroon, which started some days ago, up a notch. This conflict is about an outstanding debt of CFA1.6 billion that Orange Cameroun is denying.
“Orange Cameroun owes us more than one billion Cfa under our partnership. Despite many notices to fulfill its obligations, our partner did not think it should do so. So, after many warnings, we decided to interrupt our services on optical fiber. After this, Orange repaid a portion of the debt, CFA700 million. We are then waiting for the remaining sum. How can Orange Cameroon deny this invoice while it made a prepayment”, Gérard Assouzo’o, Camtel marketing manager said.
