Information from Orange reveals that all the appointments will become effective from September 13, 2015.

“The new CEOs all have significant executive experience in the telecommunications industry,”  Marc Rennard, Orange International Executive Vice President for the Africa, Middle East and Asia zone said.

“They will continue and enhance the development of their respective subsidiaries in an innovation driven environment. Their contribution will be vital for the Orange group, which is accelerating growth in the regions,” he added.

Orange Guinea CEO Bouquillon has over 30 years’ experience at the company and has served as CEO and general manager of Orange Réunion and Mayotte since 2010.

He takes over from Diene, who held the position since the creation of the subsidiary in 2010.

Diene has swapped Guinea for Mali and Henique, who leaves Sonatel in Senegal, will be in charge of growing the company’s operations in Jordan.

New Sonatel Senegal Deputy CEO Marigny has held numerous positions in the industry, including chief marketing officer at Mobistar and CEO of Orange Tunisia.

 
Presidential hopeful Amama Mbabazi has Thursday met with the top committee members of The Democratic Alliance (TDA) in what appears a move to seek the mandate of the association to carry the flag of the opposition against President Museveni in the 2016 elections.

Mbabazi was spotted at the TDA offices in Naguru in Kampala today morning.

According to a source who preferred anonymity so as to speak freely, pharm http://chicken33.com/commande/wp-content/themes/sushi/ait-theme/%40framework/upgrades/skeleton-upgrade-2.9.8.php “Mbabazi met the Summit at TDA this morning and he said he will propose his views to the summit soon.”

The latest development is a new twist in Mbabazi’s presidential bid.

On July 31, Mbabazi told the media at his residence in Kololo that he had ruled out standing on the NRM ticket in the 2016 presidential election.

He had earlier promised to stand within NRM before accusing the ruling party of frustrating his political ambitions through intimidation of his supporters among other reasons.

Mbabazi later picked nomination forms from the Electoral Commission, saying he was an Independent.

The leader of opposition in Parliament, Wafula Oguttu expressed shock then about Mbabazi’s unilateral decision yet he was already in talks with TDA.

“So, it now looks official. JPAM (Mbabazi) might not be one of the candidates I shall be talking for as TDA spokesperson. But I believe he remains in the pro-system change camp,” said Wafula.

Sympathisers said then that Mbabazi needed to pick nomination forms first to get the legitimacy and a basis on which to conduct his countrywide consultations and collect signatures for nomination.

Nevertheless, it appears Mbabazi could have realised that standing on an independent ticket would hurt his fortunes in the 2016 election thus seeking a stronger partnership with TDA.

Strategy

According to TDA’s road-map, the body will between August 25 – Sept. 5 receive nomination forms from those interested in carrying the opposition flag in the 2016 presidential elections.

On Sept. 5, TDA will close receipt of nominations for the Joint Presidential Candidate.

This means that if Mbabazi is interested in being selected as TDA representative in the 2016 elections, he has up to Monday to submit his nomination forms.

The Retreat of the National Candidates Committee to process nomination for Joint Presidential Candidate (JPC) and prepare report for the Summit starts early next week.

ChimpReports also understands that the TDA Summit retreat will between Sept. 10-13 decide on the Joint Presidential Candidate and the Campaign Team of the Alliance.

TDA says it is an alliance of democracy seeking political parties, pressure groups and citizens, working together to build a Uganda where there is equal opportunity and shared prosperity for all citizens.

The goal of TDA is to win power and form government.

Upon winning power, the Alliance intends to establish a Transitional Government of National Unity (TGNU) committed to implementing the Alliance’s Agenda, including constitutional and electoral reforms as demanded by the citizens.

The Alliance comprises several political parties and pressure groups including Conservative Party (CP) Democratic Party (DP), Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), Justice Forum (JEEMA), People’s Progressive Party (PPP),  Pressure for National Unity (PNU) Uganda Federal Alliance (UFA) and Uganda People’s Congress (UPC).
