Vodacom’s Chief Officer of its Consumer Business Unit, Godfrey Motsa, has left Vodacom with immediate effect.

Vodacom confirmed Motsa’s departure, saying he left the company “with immediate effect to pursue other opportunities”.

Vodacom appointed Motsa as head of the business unit in February 2015, replacing Phil Patel.

Before moving to the new role, Motsa served as chief officer of regional operations at Vodacom – having moved from the position of MD at Vodacom Congo in 2014.

Industry speculation suggests that Motsa is joining MTN to assist with the operator’s African operations.

MyBroadband asked MTN for comment regarding Motsa, but the company did not reply by the time of publication.
