Microsoft seeks new head for Kenyan office

Wednesday 6 February 2013 | 11:29 CET | News

The company has split its East and Southern Africa office into three to include Microsoft Angola (Mozambique and Angola), Microsoft Kenya and Microsoft East and Southern Africa, which will handle twelve countries like Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and South Sudan. This signals Microsoft increased focus on Kenya as a key market, given that its head will only concentrate on one market.
