Last year, Ghana's government approved the sale of 70 percent of Vodafone Ghana to the Telecel Group.

The sale was greenlighted after critical scrutiny by the country's attorney general, Godfred Dame, set the stage for the rebranding.

The company, which has now begun its operations in Ghana, currently operates in over 30 countries and employs a total of over 700 workers.
