Pule laments Moholi's Telkom departure

2012-11-07 10:52

Johannesburg - Communications Minister Dina Pule would have "loved" outgoing Telkom CEO Nombulelo Moholi to stay on, it was reported on Wednesday.

"As a department, we would have loved to have [Moholi] staying in the company," Business Day reported her as saying on Tuesday.

"She understands Telkom. However if she has taken a decision to resign, there is nothing we can do."

Telkom announced on Monday that Moholi and the parastatal's board director Neo Phakama Dongwana had resigned.

Website BDlive reported that Pule voted off four board members at Telkom's annual general meeting (AGM) in October.

The AGM was last chaired by Lazarus Zim, who announced his resignation as Telkom chairperson in September.

Moholi had rejected speculation that she intended resigning after Zim left.

She was appointed CEO in April last year after acting head Jeffrey Hedberg decided earlier in 2011 not to renew his contract.

    Jumping ship! Telkom is useless! Overpriced ancient infrastructure. Fix my copper.

      You know how to be corrupt, you know how to wast money. But you will never learn how to make money because you are there for only one reason. What can this country offer me for FREE! Learn how to serve and then people will stay?

    Maybe if Hons. Minister Dina Pule didn't splash Moholis money, on buying Christian Louboutin shoes, she should have stayed in her job a little longer!

    Judging by the number of resignations in quick succession it is apparent that the situation may be untenable for those in office. It might be the incessant meddling by the government, why else would people earning such rude salaries leave??
