O País / Jusob faces the task of rescuing the state-controlled telecommunications sector
Mohamed Rafique Jusob is the new chairman of the board of directors of the about-to-merge Mozambique Cellular (Mcel) and Telecomunicações de Moçambique (TDM).
Jusob was director-general of the Investment Promotion Centre between 2000 and 2010, and now faces the task of rescuing the state-controlled telecommunications sector, both Mcel and TDM being in unsustainable financial conditions.
Jusob has a law degree specializing in international maritime law and has held high-profile positions both in Mozambique and internationally, most notably Deputy Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism from 1994 to 2000 and as an alternative executive director at the African Development Bank representing Mozambique, Angola, Namibia And Zimbabwe.
In May, Jusob finished a three-year term as a member of the board of directors of the African Legal Services Facility, an entity of the African Development Bank group. He will be assisted in the new Mcel-TDM by administrators Mário Luís Albino and Binda Celestino Augusto Jocke.Source: O País
