South Africa's largest mobile operator, Vodacom, is looking for a new empowerment deal. The company wants to increase black ownership, in line with new economic empowerment rules. A few months ago, the government raised the quota in the ICT sector from 25% to 30%. Vodacom is about 19% black-owned. There's speculation the mobile giant is in talks with the government's investment arm, as Sumitra Nydoo reports.
