    These guys should remember that the Telecom is what it is because foreign management was brought in years ago. They may not recall now but the Telecom service was a primitive and lethargic government department prior to that, where customer service was unheard of. Looking forward to an even better service after the full divestiture. The government should not be in the business of running businesses. It becomes a honey pot for corruption and nepotism. Political lackeys won't like it, but it will be in the best interest of the public at large.

    The government should proceed with privatisation ignoring such protests from unproductive inefficient and lazy work force who will not be employed by any private enterprise. Enough of draining the country’s coffers and the government should not allow these people to hold the government and its economic recovery plans to ransom.
