The new assets are currently rented under long-term, hard currency leases to blue-chip companies, such as Big Four auditor PwC and Chinese tech giant Huawei, in seven locations across Ghana, Mauritius, Kenya and Mozambique.

 “The transactions are accretive and will result in economies of scale by utilising Grit's existing extensive infrastructure across the countries we already operate in, while providing excellent opportunities to strengthen partnerships with key international tenants,” said Grit chief executive Bronwyn Corbett in the statement.
