Is France Telkom justified or are they just a sore loser?

So France Telkom fires a salvo at the goverment about the purchase of Telkom Kenya 2 years ago. I wonder if they are justified since there is the aspect of due dilligence before purchase of the stake. I also think France Telkom hasnt quite figured out the market, and Safaricom are very good at what they do. Even with tighter regulation, i still think Safaricom will still be very far ahead.
