MTN Group South Africa has another of its senior managers on special leave as mystery over the sudden resignation of the company’s Chief Financial Officer last month become profound.
The telecommunication group confirmed that it has positioned its chief corporate services officer Robert Madzonga on special leave pending an internal inquiry.
There have been allegations that there has been an unauthorized change of sponsorship funds for the ICT Indaba which was approved by the mortified former minister of communications Dina Pule the year last.
Madzonga has apparently filed a defamation lawsuit against the company after internal emails were sent accusing him of being involved the sponsorship scandal.
Other than confirming the suspension, MTN is refusing to comment on the growing speculation about what is happening at the company.
