The telecom’s CEO, Khaled Mikkawi said: “This is very humbling and challenging, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of all those who nominated MTN and we are challenged to continuously live the values and the business principles that are building MTN into one of the leading telecommunication companies in the world.”
This year’s survey which was under the theme of “Rethinking and Reshaping the New Normal.” was conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Nation Media Group and it was carried out in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda.
