Telecommunications group MTN Rwandacell became the first mobile network operator to list its shares on the Rwanda Stock Exchange (RSE).
The listing by introduction turns Crystal Telecoms’ (CTL) shareholders into direct shareholders in MTN Rwanda.
“The MTN listing is particularly significant because it is an addition of a leading brand to the exchange and will offer more visibility which will trigger more interest from other potential new investors to join,” Celestine Rwabukumba, the CEO of RSE said.
