•The South African government is weighing a sale of its 13.9% stake in Vodafone's (VOD -0.5%) African Vodacom unit, Bloomberg reports. Vodafone, hungry for acquisitions since receiving its Verizon Wireless windfall, currently has a 65% stake and is viewed as a potential buyer. •Bloomberg adds the government's stake is valued at $2.3B. Vodacom had 68.4M subs (92.7% prepaid) spread out over various African markets at the end of June. Its organic service revenue was flat Y/Y in calendar Q2 thanks to South African termination fee cuts. •Last year, Vodacom bought South African wireline carrier Neotel for R7B ($635M).
