iWayAfrica Uganda announces new MD

Converged ICT solutions provider iWayAfrica Uganda has appointed Godfrey Sserwamukoko as Managing Director and a board member with immediate effect.

In a statement the company reiterated that the announcement takes place amid significant growth within the local market and an increased uptake of communication services.

Long-time iWayAfrica Chairman, John Nagenda, said: "We are delighted to appoint Godfrey Sserwamukoko to the Board of iWayAfrica Uganda as Managing Director. Godfrey has already demonstrated his leadership capabilities as he rebuilt iWayAfrica over the past two years. We are confident of his ability to nurture the great talent we have and take the company from strength to strength in Uganda".

Having joined the company in 2001, Sserwamukoko has extensive communications experience and brings with him a wealth of experience across the ICT spectrum: "I look forward to building an even stronger presence for iWayAfrica in Uganda. Focus and dedication to customer service will ensure we meet our goals and achieve significant growth."

iWayAfrica Uganda is part of the Gondwana International Networks (GIN) group of companies operating ISP networks across Africa.

In October 2016 the GIN Group launched Source, a fully managed virtual network satellite operator service aimed at telecoms and ISPs to be rolled out via iWayAfrica.

Source was established to enable the iWayAfrica Group to offer virtual network operator (VNO) services to telecoms operators and ISPs, lowering the traditional barriers to entry to 5Mbps with no stepped function for further capacity.
