Sentech’s board has appointed Mlamli Booi as the new permanent CEO of the state-owned broadcasting signal distributor. He replaces Setumo Mohapi, who left to take the reins at the State IT Agency in April.
As CEO, Booi’s biggest duty will be completing the successful commercial launch of South Africa’s digital terrestrial television broadcasting network.
Booi’s experience in the information and communications technology sector makes him an ideal candidate for the position of CEO, Sentech board chairman Mello Magatho said.
Booi holds an MSc in engineering from the University of Cape Town and a postgraduate diploma in project management. He is a member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Institute of Directors.
He stepped into the role effective 13 October.
Prior to his appointment, Sentech chief operating officer Rudzani Rasikhinya has been acting CEO. — (c) 2015 NewsCentral Media
