Interview: Altron CEO Mteto Nyati

Just a month after TechCentral's podcast with former Altron CEO Robbie Venter, Duncan McLeod returns to the group's Parktown, Johannesburg head office to interview new CEO, and former MTN South Africa boss, Mteto Nyati. In this podcast, McLeod asks Nyati about growing up in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, how he came to the IT industry, his move from IBM to Microsoft, and later to MTN and now Altron, and his plans for the group, founded 51 years ago by Bill Venter. Also in the podcast, Mteto speaks out about government's ICT policy white paper, and slams the current political situation in South Africa. His views on "radical economic transformation" on their own make this podcast a must-listen.
