The global telecom operator did not disclose the financial details of the proposed transaction, which is subject to approval from regulatory authorities.

The decision to exit from Telkom Kenya is part of the strategy of Orange to focus on optimizing its portfolio of assets.
Orange said the Africa and Middle-East region is a strategic priority for the group.
