That is the pecking order


Sylvia role is more important than CFO/CTO my friend. There is a reason that CCO position was specially created.

Even the arrangement of senior management on their website does well to highlight that.

Is she an appointee by Vodafone?
The arrangement is to cheat your eyes.Before her there was a guy called Peter Arina who was very sure he was second in command and was to succeed Michael Joseph.

She has 5 business units reporting to her. Consumer Business, Sales Operations, Customer Care Service, Brand Marketing & Experience, Digital and Market Development. These are the biggest parts of their operations.

Tell me who else apart from the CEO is bigger than her at Safaricom with this JD.

No he doesn't. Sylvia doesn't report to the CFO. CFO looks at mambo ya hesabu and investor relations. Very important role but not more important than CCO.

Sylvia is an appointee of Bob.
CFO and CTO are appointees of Vodafone.
No matter how many business units reports to her,that's inconsequential.

CFO is an Executive Board Member, CCO (& it is Customer and not Commercial) is not an Executive Board Member. I rest my case.

Why should GoK fight for 1 position at Safraicom, yet Safaricom employees Kenyans in its thousands directly and indirectly. Why does this 1 position matter to them so much.


If one is the biggest shareholder in a company, then they need to have a say on how its run, and also who runs it.


Exactly, you can't wish away the position of a 35% shareholder who also holds the regulatory stick and carrot.

If they get a Kenyan it will most likely be Sitoyo Lopokoiyit. He is politically safe, a consummate professional with the right experience in Safaricom and Vodafone having worked in Kenya and Tanzania. He also has experience from other industries and other countries. He comes of a family of high achievers. I think they might be the most educated Pokot family in the world.

Those who know him will tell you he is the most hardworking, disciplined man they know.

The next CEO of Safaricom should be one thinking of the next frontier 5g and the internet of everything.

The internet in Kenya is still widely used just to surf the net. We still have a lot to catch up

And thats why i have my doubts with Mrs. Mulinge. Bob and MJ both came from a telcos background and thats why they got into the job like fish gets into water. Safaricom has a reputation of constant innovation. Safaricom invented sambaza credo to your mother in the bunduz, okoa jahazi, and later kidogo kidogo they gifted the whole universe M-pesa(hata Zukabaga is copying this concept in Libra), dakika inginge they gave us a retro-call back function. The CEO should be someone who will continue with this tradition hapana mtu maembe maembe.

Commissioner of Prisons. Those boys have made their parents proud.

They came from a privileged background but you would never know. I personally knew this one at Safaricom started by selling adverts for Yellow pages telephone book after campo. Literally walking door to door trying to get people with small shops to buy advertising space.

Mulinge was appointed by Vodafone to run Vodacom TZ. If Vodafone had confidence in her then she is good to run Safcom. Though I suspect her stint at Vodacom TZ was supposed to be training to takeover Safcom in the future before TZ government booted her out.
