Kenya’s Business Daily is reporting that Orange Kenya Deputy CEO, Jane Karuku, has resigned from the company. The newspaper is also quoting Orange Kenya’s CEO saying that he is not going to replace Jane as the position has been scrapped. If the reports by East African is anything to go by, I believe that Orange Kenya might be doing some serious cost cutting.

I doubt it Jane resigned willingly. He might have been faced with a sack and decided to bolt out. I have always believed that the privatisation of Telkom Kenya was wrong and maintain that the French have run the company down and need to hand it over to the Kenyan people who can make it better than what it is now.

All does not seem right at Telkom Kenya.
