South Africa’s biggest fixed line operator, Telkom, on Wednesday rejected claims that it was set to retrench 13 000 workers.

“Telkom is aware of speculation regarding retrenchment of some 13 000 employees and wishes to place it on record that no such decision has been taken,” it said in a statement.

Telkom recently proclaimed voluntary separation and voluntary early retirement process to its employees. This highlighted that the choice to request a package was a decision of every employee.
