Nairobi - Bharti Airtel has been recognized as the continent’s Telecommunications operators of the year in the just-ended CommsMEA Awards.

Manoj Kohli, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Bharti Airtel, applauded CommsMEA’s recognition of Airtel operations in Africa.

“We are humbled by this recognition and the trust consumers and other telecommunication stakeholders have placed in Airtel since our venture in Africa from year 2010,” he said.

According to Airtel, prominent players in the Information Communication and Technology (ICT) industry attended the ceremony.

“A gathering of 300 ICT gurus from different nations were overwhelmed by the achievements of Airtel in Africana market that many industry plays see as difficult to penetrate. The CommsMEA awards gala serves to recognize excelling players in the telecoms sector in Africa and Middle East. Airtel trounced some serious contenders shortlisted for the same award such as the MTN Group, Vodacom, and Nedjma to become 2013 champions.”
