Convergence Partners says its pan-African digital service provider platform, inq. Holdings – formerly Synergy Communications – has completed the acquisition of Vodacom Business Africa’s operations in Nigeria, Zambia and Cote d’Ivoire with a further planned acquisition in Cameroon pending regulatory approvals.
The transaction grows inq.’s regional footprint as an enterprise solutions provider to 13 cities in 7 countries across Africa including its existing operations in Botswana, Malawi and Mozambique.
Under the inq. banner the company will embark on the next phase of building a unified pan-African cloud and digital service provider.
