Globacom denies involvement in Siemens bribery scam

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, “they were also awarded part of the national fibre backbone infrastructure. The contract has since been completed.

“Siemens executed the contract and Globacom has not engaged the telecommunication equipment manufacturing company for any other project.

“It 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.

“Globacom has had no other form of relationship or dealings with Siemens,” the statement said.
