“Kris Senanu on the other hand leaves the Telkom family after close to 5 years, having infused the much-needed synergies and renewed vision into the Digital Unit, to enable it to focus on more innovative approaches that will create further value to Telkom’s customers.”

Following failed merger plans with Airtel, the company last year announced that it was embarking on a new strategic direction promising a better customer experience. Telkom said it would refocus its efforts in the development of its data products.

“We are also excited about the areas we have identified for further investment and growth this year, namely our fibre infrastructure, vast GSM Networks and digital financial services platform.” The CEO said at the time.
