Says Serame Taukobong, MTN South Africa’s Chief Marketing Officer: “MTN is ecstatic to have once again gained this important recognition. These awards go to thousands of MTN employees, our partners and customers who shared the MTN vision with us and ensured that our objectives are realised. “The accolades are further affirmation from the industry and our customers that we are on the right track and need to cement the work we have been doing to provide our customers with the seamless experience they have come to expect from MTN.”

MTN was shortlisted for six of the eleven awards categories, with MTN South Africa vying for four awards i.e. Best Network Improvement Award, Changing Lives Award, Customer Service Excellence Awards and Best Marketing Campaign.
