Weeks after the resignation of Ahmad Farroukh as CEO of MTN South Africa, the Africa-wide telecoms outfit has filled the vacant position with Mteto Nyati.
Nyati’s “calibre and competencies will greatly enhance our efforts to strengthen the confidence of our customers and reinvigorate our people,” said Sifiso Dabengwa, MTN Group President and CEO.
Mr. Mteto Nyati, BSc (Eng) joined the MTN Group as Chief Enterprise Officer back in October 2014. The South African will now take charge of restructuring the company’s fortunes which are falling apart since more than 2000 workers commenced on strike back in May.
The company is reportedly going to sack the striking officers. It’s not very clear whether new workers will be acquired to fill the positions or if the posts will cease to exist.
