Telkom SA Suffers Another Exit, As Vodacom Smiles


In yet another blow to Telkom SA, Deon Liebenberg, Head of Telkom Business Mobile has left the firm and set to join Vodacom early 2013.


Deon Liebenberg  joined Telcom SA as the new head of Telkom Business Mobile in July this year from Samsung South Africa where he was managing director. He was formerly VP and MD Africa at Research In Motion (RIM).

If he joins Vodacom it will be like he is going back home as he was Vodacom executive head of sales before heading to Motorola SA as country manager.

His resignation is not unexpected as this week, a director resigned and the CEO Nombulelo Moholi handed in her resignation notice. Chairperson Lazarus Zim also left the firm. It won’t be long to have the firm close down if the government remains adamant on calls to privatize it.
