Globacom has declared that it is not in any way involved in the Siemens bribery scam.
The company stated that the only relationship it ever had with Siemens, as a private company, was when it awarded a single contract in 2003 to the German firm for the provision of GSM and broad access infrastructure in certain parts of the country.
According to a statement by Arinze Anapugars of the Public Relations Department of Globacom, â€œthey were also awarded part of the national fibre backbone infrastructure. The contract has since been completed.
â€œSiemens executed the contract and Globacom has not engaged the telecommunication equipment manufacturing company for any other project.
â€œIt should be noted that the equipment supply and installation contract forms the basis of the only relationship that Globacom has had with Siemens. It was and remains a normal business interaction that was entered into by Globacom purely to meet its network expansion needs.
â€œGlobacom has had no other form of relationship or dealings with Siemens,â€ the statement said.
