MTN Sudan Acting CEO Made Permanent

MTN has announced that Gordian Kyomukama, acting CEO of MTN Sudan, has been made its permanent chief executive.

His appointment is effective on 21 January 2020.

Kyomukama has been acting CEO since February 2019 following the deportation of CEO,  Wim Vanhelleputte, a Belgian national.

At the time, in a letter signed by Sudan’s Internal Affairs Minister Gen Jeje Odongo, the MTN Uganda boss was to stay outside Uganda indefinitely.

“We are understandably concerned about these developments and are engaging with the authorities to seek understanding that would lead us to resolving this matter. To ensure business continuity, we have appointed Gordian Kyomukama, currently Chief Technology Officer, as Acting Chief Executive,” MTN said in a statement in February.

“Our focus continues to be on delivering the best quality products and services to our customers.”

MTN Group CEO Rob Shuter said, “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 (CFO) with immediate effect.”

Kyomukama 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. Prior to returning to Uganda, he was Chief Technology and Information Officer (CTIO) of MTN Liberia.

Changes in Cameroon

MTN Cameroon CEO, Hendrik Kasteel, will be leaving MTN at the end of March, due to personal reasons. He will serve out his notice over the next two months, and a successor will be announced when finalised.
