Sérgio Santos even invited the company's officials from Kenya to participate in a seminar to be held in Angola with a focus on the sector, advising them to take advantage of the moment to study ways of creating partnerships in the country.

The invitation was made at a virtual bilateral meeting, and the minister of Economy said at the time that the Angolan market had around 90% of its economy in the informal sector, so that the operator operadoras services could represent important gains for the country.

The responsible also recognized the need and importance of a Safaricom tool called "M-pesa". This allows financial transactions to be carried out via mobile phone, considering this an experience that the Angolan authorities intend to take advantage of.

This is a tool created in Kenya in 2007 and already used in Tanzania, Egypt, Mozambique, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana and Lesotho.

According to Angop, the meeting was promoted by the Angolan ambassador to Kenya, Sianga Abílio, and the Kenyan company was represented by Sitoyo Lopokoiyit and Ogugwa Adegbite.

Remember that the telecommunications market in the country is dominated by operators Unitel and Movicel. A new operator, Africell, is expected to start operating in December.
