Just after Etisalat poached the CEO of its South African operations, MTN has appointed Mteto Nyati as a replacement, Bloomberg reports.

Mteto Nyati is a former Microsoft exec and was managing the company’s South African business before joining MTN last year as group Chief enterprise officer.

Bloomberg is crediting unnamed sources familiar with the exchanges, and no official statement has been issued by MTN South Africa.

Last week, MTN South Africa announced that its CEO, Ahmad Farroukh had resigned and would leave the company at the end of July, and only earlier today, reports surfaced that Ahmad will now be heading the operations of Etihad Etisalat in Dubai after leaving his office officially on July 31.
