Telecel Zimbabwe MD back in town

Telecel Zimbabwe MD back in town
Telecel Zimbabwe managing director Aimable Mpore is back in the country after successfully appealing against the withdrawal of his work permit.

He resumed his duties on Tuesday after returning a day earlier.
Mpore left Zimbabwe in February after immigration authorities withdrew his work permit after he failed to disclose material evidence on challenges he faced while working in Cote d’Ivoire.
In a statement yesterday, the Telecel Zimbabwe managing director said he was pleased to be back.
He said his return coincided with Telecel Zimbabwe’s subscriber base passing the one million mark.
“We want to continue the programme we have already started in growing the company and improving services to our customers,” he said.
Mpore said growing the customer base from around 250 000 to over a million within a few months was a “remarkable achievement”.
The MD, who was born of Rwandese parents in DRC, expressed surprise and disappointment that some people in Zimbabwe viewed a fellow African as a “foreigner”.
He was referring to Press reports that quoted an unnamed source criticising his appointment and that of two other senior managers because they were foreigners.
“I am surprised that certain people view a fellow African as a foreigner.
“This is completely contrary to moves towards regional and continental integration.
“There are so many Zimbabweans working in many countries in Africa.
“They are not seen as foreigners.”
Mpore said he was grateful to the authorities for restoring his work permit and allowing him to resume work at Telecel Zimbabwe.
