Telkom Kenya’s Deputy CEO Resigns as Company Sinks in Debt

Posted In Business - By Tech Mtaa On Wednesday, March 21st, 2012 With 2 Comments

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.

    The monster is/will finally go under. It is the 21st century and companies that don’t innovate are/will go south (just ask Kodak, a great company with a host of patents and innovations from the previous decades but failed to adjust to the new world). Telkom has largely remained “un-inspiring”, apart from their adverts there is little in terms of innovation. They failed to seize the data regime and their customer service and support sucks (i was once a loyal customer so i know, i have a livebox and 2 modems gathering dust and many unresolved issues and reference numbers).These guys have one of the best telcos infrastructure but have a dearth of ideas. While their competitors have people who go to work, at Telkom, people go to “the office”.

    Jane Karuku’s a she. Haven’t seen much impact from her anyway since she joined from Cadbury’s Kenya where she was MD.
