As of yesterday, Vodacom Mozambique has a new chairman of its board of directors. His name is Salimo Abdula, resuming his old post two years after leaving it and replacing Lucas Chachine, who has held the position since 2015.
This is the third time that Salimo Abdula has been head of the telecommunications operator, after leading the company from 2009 to 2011, and representing Intelec Holdings from 2013 to 2015 on behalf of Vodacom International Limited.
Vodacom’s presidents are elected every two years, and Salimo Abdula has been appointed for the period 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2019. Abdula says he is aware of the current challenges and is committed to enhancing growth and maintaining cohesion within the company.
During his term, Lucas Chachine was deeply involved in the company’s social responsibility portfolio, developing health, agriculture and education projects throughout the country. He leaves office after a mandate representing the company Emotel and continues to be a non-executive director at the telecommunications company.Source: O País
