This move solidifies O&L’s position as a premier Systems Integration and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions provider in the region.

This momentous development not only underscores O&L’s commitment to the ICT landscape in Namibia but also signifies its decision to acquire the remaining 49% interest in DD Namibia, thereby gaining sole control.

O&L recognizes the opportunity to become the sole shareholder of this specialized ICT services provider with access to global expertise and solutions whilst building an authentic, caring, and passionate Namibian brand.”

Annalize Van der Merwe, Managing Director of DD Namibia, expressed excitement about this new phase and assured stakeholders, clients, and employees of a seamless transition. “While our shareholding structure is changing, the continuation of our technical collaboration with Dimension Data and NTT will give us access to global expertise and solutions whilst we develop a proudly Namibian brand. Our commitment to innovation, growth and the highest standard of service to our clients and the communities in which we operate remains unwavering.”

Van der Merwe reaffirmed O&L and DD Namibia’s dedication to ensuring job security and fostering a stable, experienced, and resilient Namibian workforce. She stressed that the management structure will remain consistent, underscoring a commitment to providing a supportive and nurturing environment for all employees. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and the applications has been submitted.
