Telkom Kenya loses two top executives

Kris Senanu and Steve Okeyo have left Telkom Kenya ending their respective stints as part of the top executive team at the telco operator.

Senanu has served as the operator’s Managing Director for its digital service delivery unit while Okeyo has been Telkom’s Managing Director for the consumer delivery unit.

Telkom Chief Executive Officer Mugo Kibati announced the pair of departures on Thursday but did not give reasons for the exits.

The two executives have been at the heart of the operators ongoing transformation journey which saw the company ditch merger plans with Airtel in August last year in favor of a solo direction.

The two executives were named at the end of August last year as heads of units in the telco’s restructured business which saw the merger of some divisions.

The company has since been focusing on investments in data and financial services including the expansion of its 4G/LTE network.

Kris Senanu has been with Telkom for nearly five years while Steve Okeyo has been with the telco operator for two years.

Telkom Kenya is the country’s third largest operator commanding a mobile subscriptions base of 3.8 million according to the most recent data from the Communication Authority of Kenya (CA) or an equivalent 6.2 per cent share of the market.
