In Uganda, Zul Javaid is stepping down from his position as Chief Executive Officer of WARID Telecom after two years at the helm. Javaid, who leaves at the end of the month, says he will be joining a telecom company that operates in the Middle East and East Africa. "I can't say much now but I'm not joining Zain," he joked in a phone interview. In resigning, Javaid becomes the highest profile manager at WARID to leave since India's telecom giant, Essar, took over a 51% stake in the company about three months ago.
