The best telecommunication company in Sierra Leone has again launched another site at Mabonto village in the northern Tonkolili District
The company’s Managing Director RVS Bhullah said that the launch of a new site is always a great occasion for the Airtel family. He pointed out that Airtel aims to be the most loved brand in the lives of African people by 2015 and through the expansion of its network the company is ensuring that they are on the right track to achieve this.
