Subsidiaries belonging to Moroccan telecommunications group, Maroc Telecom, have been rebranded as Moov Africa.
In Burkina Faso, ONATEL-SA has become Moov Africa Burkina Faso. Since December 2006, Maroc Telecom has held a controlling stake (61%) which empowered it to change the name of the company to Moov Burkina Faso, effective from 1 January 2021.

The change is applied to 11 African countries which encompasses Maroc Telecom’s footprint.

Managing Director Sidi Mohamed Naimi said, “They are Moov Africa – to signify a single graphic sign, all the strength of a group and Maroc Telecom’s commitment to put its expertise at the service of each of its subsidiaries. Evolving under a single brand means being enriched by differences, exchanging experiences and expertise to strengthen skills.”
Moreover, in Gabon, where Maroc Telecom has operated since 2007, Gabon Telecom SA has been changed to Moov Africa Gabon Telecom.
“The new Moov Africa brand identity of the Maroc Telecom Group marks a further step in the international development of the Maroc Telecom Group, and thus reaffirms the unequivocal commitment of the Maroc Telecom Group alongside Gabon to offer the best products and services to its customers,” the Group stated.
