It’s Friday again and that means another episode of SA’s business technology podcast, TalkCentral. This week, your hosts Duncan McLeod and Candice Jones delve into the ongoing drama at the department of communications, where fired communications department director-general Mamodupi Mohlala has been reinstated — at least for now — by minister Siphiwe Nyanda.
In this week’s packed show, we also talk about Neotel‘s decision to defocus its attention on the retail consumer market; MTN SA getting the iPhone 4, thus ending Vodacom‘s exclusivity over the device’s distribution in SA; Cell C’s R2,2bn loan from China Development Bank; Peter Nelson‘s decision to leave Telkom before his contract expires on 9 October; Garmin’s decision to recall more than a million personal navigation devices and how this will affect SA users; and Mthunzi Mdwaba‘s removal from the board of Kelly Group.
Also, as discussed in this week’s show, keep an eye on TechCentral’s Facebook page, which we’ll be updating more regularly and improving in the weeks and months ahead.
