Telkom Kenya, Airtel given greenlight to restart merger

The High Court has cleared Telkom Kenya and Airtel to renew their planned merger which the court had previously revoked.

This is after it received a letter from the anti-graft agency questioning the sale of Telkom’s properties during the privatization period.

In his judgement, High Court Judge Jairus Ngaa said that the move by the EACC to recover property already sold or to stop those on sale was illegal.

“In the language of judicial review, its decision can be said to be unlawful because it is tainted by all or either of the grounds of illegality, irrationality and procedural impropriety,” the judge said.
