Bota leaves MultiChoice


MULTICHOICE Zambia general manager Simon Bota has left as head of the pay television business in Zambia effective May 31.
According to a statement issued yesterday, Mr Bota will, however, remain with MultiChoice Zambia until the end of July to assist with the transition and that finance manager Ngoza Matakala is acting as general manager effective yesterday.

“It has been an honour and a privilege to lead MultiChoice Zambia over the last six years. The MultiChoice Zambia Group, which constitutes MultiChoice Zambia Limited and GOtv Zambia Broadcasting Limited, with DStv and GOtv products, is one of the best examples of public private partnership. It is a joint venture between the public broadcaster, ZNBC and MultiChoice Africa Limited, and is in the top five most recognisable brands in the country.
The MultiChoice Zambia and GOtv Zambia board praised Mr Bota’s leadership, integrity and resilience in guiding the business through crisis and success and for positioning the business well for the future.
