wont be any shockwaves after the introduction of Starlink as a precedence has already been set in other African markets, where liquid is already fully operational.

“It is just a normal competitive environment, we are adjusting our prices due to the current stability of the ZiG exchange rate so I will give you an example we have it in Rwanda, we have it in Zambia.”
Songola went on to indicate perhaps the main issue was on price speculation adding,
“We will not be affected by the introduction of other players , its just a normal competitive environment , we have it (starlink) Rwanda and Zambiawe still operating the same,  our issue would be more on pricing and we have responded to the market on the current  stability of the local currency .”
