Kasapa MD resigns


The Managing Director of Kasapa Telecom is resigning from the company after nine years in charge of the telecoms operator.

The very vocal Bob Norris Palitz tells Joy Business he believes he has contributed his quota to the company and that it is time to move on.

Mr Palitz’s resignation comes a year and a half after the company was taken over by Dubai-based Expresso Telecoms.

“I’m getting on…and looking for new challenges and I know that the incredible team of Ghanaian managers and staff, some of whom were already there, some of whom joined us after I came [to] Kasapa, know the meaning of operating with integrity and transparently and professionally and I have every confidence they would continue to do that regardless of what happens after I have gone,” he said.

Kasapa, which was rebranded from Celltel in 2003, runs on a CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) technology and has been loud in discussions of number portability amongst the networks in Ghana.

The Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) and the CDMA are the two main telephony technologies.

Kasapa is the only CDMA network in Ghana competing with five other GSM operators – MTN, Vodafone, Tigo, Zain and soon-be-introduced Glo Mobile.

The CDMA operator has the longest track record of any network in Ghana with regard to promoting the adoption of MNP, a system through which Ghanaians would be free to choose which mobile network to use, while retaining their original phone number.
