A bit contrevorsial..but makes senses I guess.."a la guerre comme a la guerre"
This is a short bio of Dr.Mo Ibrahim
"Dr Mo Ibrahim is the founder of Celtel International and one of Africa’s most successful business leaders. Originally from Sudan, Dr Ibrahim is a global expert in mobile communications with a distinguished academic and business career.
In 1998, he founded MSI Cellular Investments, which was later renamed Celtel International. The company now operates in 15 African countries, under licences that cover more than a third of the continent’s population. The company has invested more than $750m in Africa, helping to bring the benefits of mobile communications to millions of people across the continent. In 2005, Celtel was sold to MTC Kuwait for $3.4bn, making it one of Africa’s most successful companies ever.
Dr Ibrahim holds a BSc in electrical engineering from the University of Alexandria, Egypt, an MSc in electronics and electrical engineering from the University of Bradford, and PhD in mobile communications from the University of Birmingham. He is a member of the Africa Regional Advisory Board of London Business School."
Wanna know more about him, read this interview:
BUT what got me interested in him is that he founded the "Mo Ibrahim Foundation"..his initiative is simple to create some type of financial funding or support for the African leaders which would intice them not to hold on to power for too long...in the form of an award (which will consist of 10 annual payments of 500,000 dollars (396,000 euros), with a 200,000-dollar-a-year life pension to follow)
Waouh you gotta pay people now to leave office now..hun!!
Anywhoo just for being a great businessman & for having initiative
Atalakou pour le Soudan:)
