In another development, MTN has announced that Ms Santie Botha, Group Chief Marketing Officer, is leaving MTN after seven years of service to pursue new endeavours.
“Santie has made a most appreciated contribution to the Group, assisting to embed the MTN brand across the Group’s footprint, culminating with MTN being one of the sponsors of the successful 2010 FIFA World Cup™,” says Nhleko.
