MTN appoints new CEO

first_imgThe newly appointed CEO and president of MTN, Sifiso Dabengwa, will commence his duties in April 2011.(Image: MyBroadband.co.za) On 20 December African telecommunications giant MTN announced the appointment of its new CEO and president, Sifiso Dabengwa, who will commence his duties from April 2011. Dabengwa replaces outgoing CEO Phuthuma Nhleko, who leaves in March 2011 after nine years at the helm.Dabengwa is the current group chief operating officer, a position which will soon be replaced with that of chief executive of its international operations.“Given the strong growth and development of MTN International (MTNI), it has been decided to abolish the position of COO and instead to appoint a CEO for the company to focus more intensely on opportunities,” said MTN in a statement.The incoming CEO Sifiso Dabengwa is an engineering graduate of the University of Zimbabwe and was chief operating officer of MTN Group and chief executive officer of MTN Nigeria – simultaneously – before his new appointment. He holds an MBA from the University of the Witwatersrand and was also head of power utility Eskom’s distribution division, where he controlled a multibillion-rand budget before joining MTN in 1999.He started his career at MTN as MD of the group’s South African operations. In 2004 he assumed his two concurrent positions, with the goal of overseeing growth and consolidation into Nigeria’s mobile market.He has worked closely with Nhleko since returning to South Africa in 2006 and according to analysts his appointment was widely expected, as this would provide continuity for the company.Telecoms analyst Spiwe Chireka said: “Whoever would take over from Phuthuma Nhleko would definitely need to have the African experience as their first strong point.”“He’s been with Phuthuma for a while and so far MTN’s vision and strategy have worked well and you want someone who can continue with that,” added Chireka.However, analysts have also expressed caution. Fund manager Pallavi Ambekar warned that Dabengwa will be faced with the same challenges as Nhleko – these include regulatory problems and increased competition in major markets.Ambekar said: “The focus on capex and cost efficiency and continued focus on growing key markets are expected to be some of the priorities.”The outgoing CEO Phuthuma Nhleko is also chairman and a founding member of Worldwide African Investment Holdings, an investment company with interests in the petroleum, telecommunications and IT industries.Nhleko holds a BSc from the University of Ohio State and an MBA in finance from the University of Atlanta.He holds directorships in a number of major companies including Johnnic Holdings; Nedbank Group; Old Mutual SA; Network Communications Solutions; Nixia Trading; Worldwide Capital and Commerce One.Nhleko wanted to leave MTN on a high note – in 2010 the company attempted to buy Egyptian operator Orascom and to clinch a deal with India’s Bharti Airtel but both deals fell through.Although Nhleko did not seal those two deals, his tenure at MTN was a success and he will now take up the position of group non-executive chairman.Multinational mobile network MTN is a telecoms company operating in 21 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.It is the second largest mobile network in South Africa and is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE). The group has 134.4-million subscribers across its territories.MTN operates in Botswana, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, the Republic of Congo, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia, Iran, Afghanistan, Benin, Cyprus, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Republic, Liberia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.In South Africa, the telecoms company supports football; cycling; cricket; music and beauty pageants. It sponsors local football teams Golden Arrows, Ajax Cape Town and Black Leopards. It’s the sponsor of one of South Africa’s largest cycling clubs, Club 100. In terms of music, it hosts one of the country’s biggest music events, the MTN South African Music Awards. In 2010 it hosted the premier Crowning Miss Soweto beauty pageant.last_img read more

South Africa’s first woman police chief

first_img13 June 2012 President Jacob Zuma has appointed South Africa’s first female national police commissioner, Mangwashi Victoria Phiyega, to replace Bheki Cele, who has been fired after a presidential board of inquiry found him unfit for office. Phiyega has been serving as chairperson of the Presidential Review Committee on State-Owned Enterprises, and deputy chair of the Independent Commission for the Remuneration of Public Office Bearers.‘Wealth of experience as senior executive’ “Ms Phiyega brings a wealth of experience as a senior executive who understands the responsibility of government in the fight against crime and the duties imposed in dealing with state assets,” Zuma told a press briefing in Pretoria on Tuesday. “I have every confidence that she will show leadership and acquit herself well as national commissioner.” Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa welcomed Phiyega’s appointment, saying she brought with her a “wealth of experience on strategic leadership and a sound management background, both from public service and the private sector”. This experience would “stand her in good stead as she steers the South African Police Service [SAPS] towards better compliance, systems integration, effective and greater accountability,” Mthethwa said.Cele ‘unfit for office’ In September last year, Zuma appointed a board of inquiry, chaired by Justice Jakes Moloi, to investigate alleged misconduct by Cele and pronounce on his fitness for office. “The board has found General Cele to be unfit for office and has recommended his removal from office in terms of the provisions of section 8(6)(b)(v) of the South African Police Service Act No. 68 of 1995,” Zuma said. “Having thoroughly considered the report of the board, and applied my mind thereto, I have decided to release General Cele from his duties.” Zuma said that Cele still had a lot to contribute to South Africa, adding that crime levels in the country had continued to drop under his tenure.Improving management, financial, security systems “However, the reports of the Public Protector and that of the board of inquiry indicate deficiencies administratively and in particular in relation to General Cele’s duties as an accounting officer,” Zuma said. Zuma said he had had a discussion with Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa about “what needs to be corrected immediately within the SAPS so that we can continue the excellent record of fighting crime”. This included management and financial systems as well as the breaches of information security which, Zuma said, had “unfortunately become common”. “We have in the past few weeks witnessed a disappointing spectacle of police officers jeopardising state security by placing information in the public domain, in contravention of their oath of office. This is unacceptable and cannot be tolerated if the fight against crime is to continue being effective.” Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Space science can solve socio-economic problems

first_imgSkills, jobs, and social issues – these are on the agenda for South Africa’s space industry. It is pouring resources into building a pipeline of space scientists, and is using its facilities to help understand climate issues. Co-operation with other nations, such as China, is key. The radio telescope at HartRAO can help South Africa overcome some of its socio-economic issues. (Image: Shamin Chibba) • SKA will change the way we listen to the universe• SKA: answering the big questions about the universe• Design for SKA telescope ‘has been agreed’• SKA will boost Africa’s presence in science fields • Time-travelling SKA to look back at the birth of stars Shamin Chibba South Africa’s space science industry is on a new mission that has nothing to do with Earth observation or geomagnetic storms. This time, it is out to improve South Africa’s socio-economic situation by developing skills, creating jobs and increasing the number of space science students in the country.Space scientists from Hartbeeshoek Radio Astronomy Observatory (HartRAO), Square Kilometre Array (SKA) and South African National Space Agency (Sansa) met local and foreign journalists on day two of the Forum on China-Africa Co-operation media tour hosted by Brand South Africa and other partners.The three-day tour showcased some of South Africa’s some of South Africa’s competitive strengths, including the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, BAW auto manufacturers and Constitution Hill.On the second day, on Monday 30 November, South Africa’s past and future collided as journalists were taken to HartRAO and the Phillip V Tobias Fossil Primate and Hominid Laboratory, where most of the world’s hominid fossils are housed. According to Brand South Africa, innovation, archaeology, science and technology are areas on which the country focuses to achieve the National Development Plan goals.Speaking at HartRAO, the manager of the SKA in South Africa, Lindsay Magnus, said the project was developing skills and creating numerous jobs for the country. “SKA’s human capital development is like a sausage factory,” he said.At least 78% of undergraduates funded by SKA went on to obtain their honours degrees, he added. SKA is also developing maths and science for pupils and teachers in schools in the Karoo where the radio telescopes will be based.The SKA is a series of radio telescopes, which look like large satellite dishes. Radio telescopes are used in radio astronomy, the branch of the science concerned with radio emissions from celestial objects – galaxies, stars and the like. These are used to determine their size, mass and chemical composition. According to Magnus, SKA will be at the forefront of answering questions about the universe. Professor Ludwig Combrinck, an associate director at HartRAO, standing outside the control room. HartRAO, he said, was a Nasa Deep Space Station between 1961 and 1974 and assisted in Apollo 11’s landing on the moon.Earth observation can help to alleviate water shortageSansa executive director Amal Khatri said the research the agency undertook could change the socio-economic situation of South Africa.The Earth Observation Programme, which took satellite images for research purposes, was used to solve society’s problems, such as water shortages, he explained. “Images on water levels can have a visual impact regarding water shortages. It can create awareness.”Khatri said the space sector had potential to develop new skills and that there was a process in place that could support individuals who wished to become space engineers.Sansa had recently collaborated with China’s Centre for Resources Satellite Data and Application on the installation of the China-Brazil Earth Resources Satellite (CBERS-04) terminal. Sansa is authorised to directly receive, process, archive and distribute CBERS satellite data free-of-charge to the Earth observation community across Africa.It will also collaborate with the China Great Wall Industry Corporation in hosting GPS equipment in Hermanus.last_img read more

Yuvraj Singh smashes 5 sixes in ‘unbelievable knock’ in Global T20 Canada

first_imgYuvraj Singh may have quit international cricket but the former India all-rounder is turning heads with his performances in the second season of the ongoing Global T20 Canada in Brampton.On Saturday, Yuvraj Singh sent the crowd at CAA Centre in Ontario in a tizzy by showing glimpses of his vintage self. The Toronto Royals captain smashed 51 from just 22 balls but his valiant effort went in vain as his team lost their penultimate group-stage match to Brampton Wolves.George Munsey’s 66 helped Brampton Wolves post a mammoth total of 222 for 6 in 20 overs. In reply, Yuvraj-led Toronto Nationals got off to a strong start Brendon McCullum getting a quickfire 36.Yuvraj Singh, who walked in at No.4, started attack from the word go. The elegant left-hander took his fans down the memory lane as he was hitting sixes at will. Yuvraj hit five sixes and 3 boundaries and went on to score his first half-century of the T20 tournament in Canada.Yuvraj perished in the 16th over and Toronto Nationals eventually fell short of the target by 11 runs.Having hit a flurry of boundaries, Yuvraj said he was happy to get the runs in front of his Indian Premier League coach Mahela Jayawardene, who watched the Global T20 Canada match from the stands.”I was happy to see my IPL coach, he wasn’t happy with my bat swing during IPL. Hopefully the crowd enjoyed those big hits,” Yuvraj said.’Unbelievable knock’Speaking after leading his team to a win in a closely-fought contest, Brampton Wolves captain and New Zealand opener Colin Munro said Yuvraj Singh’s big-hitting display gave them a few nervy moments even after posting a mammoth total on the board.advertisement”The match was a lot closer, Yuvi played an unbelievable knock, put us under pressure. We batted well at the start, they came back well, but we got enough runs on the board. Were under pressure in the chase, but did well to come out on top,” Colin Munro said.Yuvraj Singh’s Toronto Nationals have won only 1 from 4 matches and are currently sitting at the 5th spot of the 6-team table. They need a win in their final match against Montreal Tigers on Sunday to remain in contention for progression to Round 2.Stunning catch by @YUVSTRONG12 to dismiss @54simmo.#GT2019 #BWvsTN @TorontoNational @BramptonWolves pic.twitter.com/ih1VzjxMQ5GT20 Canada (@GT20Canada) August 4, 2019Too many autographs to sign for @MahelaJay.And, as always, he’s doing it all with a smile. @CityBrampton @OfficialSLC @mipaltan #ilovecanada#GT2019#ERvsWH@ExploreCanada pic.twitter.com/R0g2VzQelvGT20 Canada (@GT20Canada) August 3, 2019Later in the day, Edmonton Royals managed to end their winless streak in the ongoing GT20 Canada as they registered a massive eight-wicket victory over Winnipeg Hawks. Chasing a target of 196 runs, Anshuman Rath and Navneet Dhaliwal provided their side with a brilliant start. Dhaliwal got out after scoring 19 runs but Rath went on to score his half-century.Dhaliwal’s dismissal had brought Mohammad Hafeez out on the field. Hafeez too scored his half-century but soon after Kaleem Sana got hold of him (55).James Neesham then accompanied Rath and both played brilliantly and kept on adding runs to the scoreboard. Rath (87*) and Neesham (28*) both took their side over the line to secure an eight-wicket victory with 14 balls to spare.Also Read | India vs West Indies: Navdeep Saini can be really quick on good bowling wickets, says Bhuvneshwar KumarAlso See:last_img read more

What Kevin Durants Injury Means For KD The Finals And Free Agency

From ABC News: 2014-15Wesley Matthews283.01.6237 VORP Check out our latest NBA predictions. 1996-97LaPhonso Ellis261.10.2222 The biggest loss in Game 5 of the NBA Finals may not have belonged to the Toronto Raptors. Although the Golden State Warriors defeated Toronto on Monday to extend the finals for at least one more game, Warriors forward Kevin Durant, who left with a leg injury, likely tore his Achilles tendon in the second quarter. Pending an unexpected result from Durant’s MRI on Tuesday, the injury will have far-reaching implications for Durant, the Warriors and the NBA as a whole this summer.Achilles tears are not quick injuries to recover from. According to a list compiled by ESPN’s Stats and Information Group, players typically needed almost nine months to recover, and they tended to have a significant reduction in both playing time and performance in the season following the trauma. 2012-13Kobe Bryant345.1-0.2240 2006-07Elton Brand275.50.0243 2011-12Chauncey Billups350.30.2296 Players who were about Durant’s age when they got injured, such as Rudy Gay of the Spurs, recovered most of their previous form within a couple of seasons. (Gay had a very solid +1.0 Box Plus/Minus and 1.4 VORP this season.) Others, however, either took longer to reclaim their skills (such as Elton Brand) or were never really the same player they’d been before (such as LaPhonso Ellis).So it’s tough to say exactly what this means for Durant’s career going forward. But we do know that Durant’s injuries continue to define the entire 2019 NBA playoffs.His absence significantly swung Golden State’s odds of beating the Raptors, including a 3-point shift in the Vegas line for Game 5 at one point (which was enough to turn the Warriors from underdogs to favorites, before the closing line settled as a pick-em). The betting activity was justified. Durant’s return Monday night probably saved the Warriors’ season. (In addition to a late flurry of threes by Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.) In the 12 minutes Durant played, Golden State was +6 and looked notably more like the Warriors we’ve become accustomed to seeing — averaging 154.5 (!) points per 100 possessions according to NBA Advanced Stats, knocking down 8 of 11 threes and even turning defense into offense in transition. Without Durant on the court, Toronto outscored the Warriors by 5, and the team was far less efficient.And yet, the question will linger whether Durant was truly ready to play Monday night — and if not, whether rushing him back onto the court to help extend Golden State’s season in Game 5 was worth the long-term cost to Durant’s health. “He was cleared to play tonight,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said after the game. “That was a collaborative decision. I don’t believe there’s anybody to blame, but I understand in this world and if you have to, you can blame me. I run our basketball operations department.”Golden State overhauled its training staff last summer after losing head performance therapist Chelsea Lane to the Atlanta Hawks, and the team has had an injury-filled postseason. In addition to Durant’s long absence, the team lost Thompson for Game 3 of the finals (a Warriors loss) and has been managing center Kevon Looney’s ongoing collarbone fracture. It’s also worth noting that Durant’s original trouble had been with a strained right calf, not an Achilles injury, though it’s hard to believe the two injuries are completely unrelated, despite KD reportedly being told he “couldn’t get more hurt” by playing on the calf Monday.And now the big-picture question is what Durant’s injury does to his impending free agency, which was supposed to headline what might be the most impressive class of available talent in any summer of the league’s history.Durant has a $31.5 million player option for next season, which he was long expected to decline and test the open market. But Monday’s injury may change that decision-making process. Although he left money on the table in his previous Warriors deals, Durant could sign for as much as $221 million (over five years) if he opts out but returns to Golden State, or $164 million (over four years) if he signs elsewhere. Despite the long-term injury, plenty of star-desperate teams may still be willing to offer Durant maximum money even knowing his recovery could cost him at least the entire 2019-20 regular season.But if he does leave Golden State, will an injured Durant be able to lure another star player or two from this talented class to sign alongside him? Particularly ones willing to play without Durant for an entire season before he can rejoin the presumptive superteam? Nobody could honestly claim to predict the enigmatic Durant anyway, but his injury adds yet another layer of uncertainty onto the free-agency summer — and the league’s future championship picture.For now, the Warriors will have to find a way to win this series without Durant. But was Durant’s return worth it? Did they rush him back? Will he still sign somewhere else over the offseason? Regardless of who wins, those questions will now hang over the rest of the finals — and far, far beyond.

Robots bearing snacks are about to overrun college campuses

first_img Amazon’s drones and robots want to take over your deliveries Now playing: Watch this: Mobile 0 Post a comment 10 Photos 1:32center_img Tags Share your voice Starships bots are coming to University of Pittsburgh’s campus, home of the Panthers, on Tuesday. Starship Starship Technologies launched a new service earlier this year to deliver food and groceries at two US universities using self-driving robots. It’s now planning on doing a whole lot more.The San Francisco-based startup announced Tuesday it will expand this service to 100 universities over the next two years, thanks to an infusion of $40 million in new funding. The expansion, which will focus mostly on the US, starts with the University of Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Purdue University is coming in early September. George Mason University and Northern Arizona University came online in January and March, respectively.”There’s going to be a whole generation of students that grow up tapping on their phone when they’re hungry and a robot brings food to them,” Lex Bayer, Starship’s CEO, said in an interview.Starship is a part of the burgeoning delivery robots industry, which has already attracted corporate giants Amazon, Google and UPS, as well as a constellation of smaller players including Postmates and Workhorse. These companies see an opportunity to bring their customers things they need much faster, more cheaply or with far more convenience than current delivery options offer. And they could in some cases extend delivery times to nearly every hour of the day. These companies will, though, need to develop their services amid growing concerns about bots and automation stealing humans’ jobs.amazon-scout-robotAmazon’s similarly shaped Scout robots are getting a test run in Washington state. Ben Fox Rubin/CNET Amazon is busy working on flying drones to deliver consumer goods to customers in 15 minutes through its Prime Air program and has already started a pilot in Britain. It’s also developed the Scout autonomous sidewalk robots, which look like and work similarly to Starship’s bots. It’s testing these deliveries in Washington state. UPS, meanwhile, is focusing on helping business customers, including efforts to bring flying drones to hospital campuses to speed the completion of lab tests.Starship, too, has found a niche in this new market, saying it’s receiving heavy demand from college campuses for its squat, battery-powered, six-wheeled robots. Bayer explained that colleges aren’t so easily served by typical food delivery apps like Uber Eats or DoorDash, since there’s usually little available parking and campuses often feel like mazes to outsiders. While those features make it hard for human delivery workers, they’re no concern for Starship’s autonomous bots, which are preloaded with detailed 3D maps of campuses before they ever start roaming around and which don’t need to park anywhere.The Starship bots bring breakfast, late-night snacks and plenty else in between, letting students buy food from local restaurants through its app. The bots then bring orders to wherever customers are on campus for $1.99 per shipment. Starship also gets paid by the restaurant for making each delivery.Starship typically uses 25 to 50 robots per campus, and they roam around seven days a week, rain or shine, from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.  Bayer said they don’t displace workers’ jobs, since deliveries often don’t exist on campuses. He said the company hires student workers to maintain, monitor and recharge the bots.mobile0c9a66-assets-img-media-upsdrone20Demonstrating UPS drone deliveries at a hospital campus. UPS Bayer added that the bots are safe on sidewalks, driving at 4 mph and bristling with 10 cameras, radar, ultrasound sensors and GPS, in addition to sophisticated computer vision and neural networks to process what they see. These bots have already completed 100,000 deliveries and driven 300,000 miles, Bayer said. Even though the Starship bots weigh just 50 pounds, he said thefts of the bots don’t happen since they include alarms and are monitored by humans. Also, a bot’s payload of food remains locked inside until a student opens it using the app.Like just about any tech CEO, Bayer isn’t content just making the Starship bot ubiquitous on college campuses from coast to coast, with a goal of eventually serving 1 million students. The company has already started package deliveries in neighborhoods and parts deliveries on business and industrial campuses.”Our model and vision is to move everything around in neighborhoods and cities,” Bayer said.
