Thursday 30 January 2020 | 09:11 CET | News
South African mobile operator Cell C has appointed two independent non-executive directors, Sindi Zilwa and Mark Nelson-Smith, who join the board with immediate effect. Zahir Williams, Cell C's chief legal officer, also joins the board as company secretary and adviser to the board on corporate governance, and to assist board members with their duties and responsibilities. These appointments come a day after Cell C's majority shareholder Blue Label Telecoms announced that the mobile firm had defaulted on its loan repayments to the tune of ZAR 2.7 billion.
