South Africa - Vodacom recruit a dilemma for MTN

MTN is caught in a bind after poaching a top executive from rival Vodacom.
New vice-president for the South and East Africa region, Godfrey Motsa may not be able to start his job in July, as Vodacom wants a court order preventing him from joining MTN before the end of 2016 to be enforced.
In 2015, Vodacom took Motsa to court after he resigned as its chief officer for the consumer business unit to join MTN.
