Zimbabwe to Revamp State owned Telco NetOne

Telecoms

The government of Zimbabwe is expected to replace much of the top management at the country’s state-owned mobile operator NetOne as it looks to improve performance and grow the company.

Advertisements have been posted to fill 24 key roles at the cellco, including Chief Operating Officer (COO), Chief Finance Officer (CFO) and Chief Technical Officer (CTO).

A report from local newspaper The Herald suggests that the current Managing Director Reward Kangai will become Chief Executive Officer (CEO), but will lose some of his influence to the new COO.

The government wants NetOne to reach five million subscribers by the end of this year, up from 3.3 million at the end of March.
