BREAKING. Beverly Ngwenya is Sentech's new chief executive.

          IN!                                     OUT!

You're reading it here first.

I can tell you first that Beverly Ngwenya will become the new chief executive of Sentech from tomorrow. This after the struggling Sebiletso Mokone-Matabane blatantly quit months before September, which is when her contract would have come to an end.

With Sebiletso Mokone-Matabane now gone and under whose tenureship the beleaguered state-owned signal distributor went from bad to worse and piled on more debt, Beverly Ngwenyga will now take over as acting chief executive officer. Beverly Ngwenya is currently Sentech's chief operating officer and has been COO for the past three years.

I can also tell you before anyone else that Quraysh Patel as the new chairperson (replacing Collin Hickling), Mesuli Dhlamini, Zanele Hlatshwayo and Thabo Leeuw will all join the Sentech board as directors.
