MTN appoints CEO in South Sudan as Cameroon lead quits
MTN Group has announced Gordian Kyomukama has been appointed as the new MTN South Sudan CEO, effective 21 January.
The telco says Kyomukama is a seasoned telecoms executive, with close to 30 years of experience in the sector, most of which was with MTN.
He started in MTN Uganda as part of the Opco’s pioneer team and has also undertaken secondment opportunities in Rwanda, Cameroon and Ivory Coast, in the course of his tenure, the company says.
Prior to returning to Uganda, he was chief technology and information officer of MTN Liberia.
Commenting on Kyomukama’s appointment, MTN Group CEO Rob Shuter says: “I would like to congratulate Gordian on his new role, and I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Lily Zondo, who has been holding the fort as acting South Sudan CEO over the past few months. Lily will resume her role as MTN South Sudan chief financial officer with immediate effect.”
MTN Cameroon CEO Hendrik Kasteel will leave MTN at the end of March, due to personal reasons, says MTN.
He will serve out his notice over the next two months, and a successor will be announced when finalised, it concludes.
