The below brief addresses a number of interesting developments that occurred in the competition space across Africa during the course of 2019. In South Africa, we consider the amendments to the Competition Act, the enforcement approach to the new buyer power and price discrimination provisions, outcomes of the market inquiries into private healthcare, the grocery retail market and data services, and outcomes of notable cases. We also explore competition law developments in other African jurisdictions, including the commencement of the Angolan competition law regime, amendments to the competition law regimes in Botswana and Kenya, and the establishment of a standalone Nigerian merger regime.
