Sylvia Mulinge Vodacom Tanzania
Vodacom Tanzania has confirmed that former Safaricom Director of Consumer Business Sylvia Mulinge has been denied a work permit by the country’s immigration officials.
In a statement, the telco said it will start the process of identifying a suitable replacement who “will not only inspire confidence in investors but also have the requisite governance capability as a CEO of a listed company.”
Sylvia Mulinge’s appointment as CEO of Vodacom Tanzania hit the wall on grounds that there are more experienced Tanzanians to take on the task. Ms. Mulinge should have started her new job in June after taking over from Ian Ferrao. The telco has in the meantime appointed Hishim Hendi to the position in an acting capacity.

How Safaricom Killer Director Sylvia Mulinge Got Away With Murder
A blunder by the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions saw Safaricom Killer director Ms. Sylvia Mulinge walk free with murder. But further sources have alluded that money must have changed hands because the way the ODPP wing handled the case in a very careless manner raises eyebrows.
The scandal involved a road crash that resulted to the death of a poor minor resident in the slums of Kibera adjacent to the Southern bypass in Nairobi caused by a sleek vehicle driven by a top Safaricom executive Sylvia Mulinge. The vehicle, a top of the range Toyota Prado KBU 483M has Safaricom Ltd registered as its legal owners.
Mrs Sylvia Wairimu Mulinge, rejected by Tanzania over integrity, was involved in the fatal accident allegedly caused by reckless driving resulting in the death of young Mary Kusa Etale who was a minor living with her parents in Kibera. Mrs Mulinge, in conspiracy with her bosses, then went ahead and kept the crash secret contrary to Vodafone’s strict Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) policy.
Lawyers acting for the deceased wrote a protest letter to the Directorate of Public Prosecution highlighting the mishandling of the case of causing death by careless/dangerous driving. The letter was copied to the Inspector General of Police and the Independent Police Oversight Authority. The DPP investigations into the matter would held Sylvia Mulinge to account but what really happened?
The accident was itself a bold violation of a core section of Vodafone’s “Absolute Rules” on OHS which demands that employees must “never exceed speed limits or travel at speeds that are dangerous for the type of road, vehicle, or conditions”. Eyewitnesses claim Mrs Mulinge was speeding while overtaking a stationary truck at the time of the accident which happened in an area known as “Raila Village” which is known to have high pedestrian traffic. She was also drunk and staggering at the time.
Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore appears to have secretly conspired with Mrs Mulinge to cover up the accident with the intention of protecting the exposure of Mrs Mulinge as a reckless/careless driver and move which amounts to a serious infringement of one of the core values for Vodafone PLC which, as part of its OHS, maintains a strict zero tolerance to loss of life or injury related to Vodafone operations or by any of its more than 100,000 employees worldwide.
The scandalous Safaricom top duo then went as far as attempting to bribe the parents of the deceased through an out of court settlement with a paltry offer Kenya shillings 950,000/- which betrayed the value they attached to the late Mary’s life. To make matter worse, correspondence prepared by lawyers acting for the deceased family suggest Mrs. Mulinge and Mr. Collymore of illegally influencing law enforcement officials to avoid thorough investigations as to the cause and circumstances of the fatal accident.
Despite all these details, the Killer director managed to bribe a Judge to scuttle the case after she went to court. Mulinge had moved to court in a bid to stop her arrest arguing that there was malice from the police to charge her for an offense that occurred in February 2015. Even stories on media were purged using Safaricom’s deep financial pockets. The high court barred the police and DPP from arresting and prosecuting her, something that shocked Kenyans.
Justice George Odunga prohibited the agencies from arresting or prosecuting Mulinge for the offense of causing the death of a minor by dangerous driving. In a judgment read on his behalf by Justice John Mativo, Odunga further ordered that Mulinge should not be charged at the Kibera law courts. What raised eyebrows was the ODPP’s lack of ambition in prosecuting this case, despite mountains of evidence.
The Judge indicated that the status quo remains unless the police and DPP have satisfactory evidence that the circumstances have changed to warrant a review of the initial decision not to charge her, but these two agencies went mute revealing that Safaricom had used their deep financial powers to buy the system. Why the no-nonsense DPP Noordin Haji has not re-opened the case has remained a mystery. The Big question is ” How will the next powerful Safaricom Director know that driving drunk, overspeeding and killing minors has consequences? “
Sylvia Mulinge work permit
Dar es Salaam
Telecom operator Vodacom Tanzania has confirmed that the work permit application for Sylvia Mulinge who had been appointed chief executive officer was declined by the Labour Commissioner. The Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE)-listed telco said on Friday, in a brief statement, that it would now recommence the search for Ms. Mulinge’s replacement.“Vodacom Tanzania remains fully committed to identifying a candidate that will not only inspire confidence in investors but also have the requisite governance capability as CEO of a listed company,” the mobile operator said.
“Naturally, we are disappointed, and we regret the Labour Commissioner’s decision. We will be engaging with the authorities. We are confident that Vodacom Tanzania has a strong management team in place to lead the company effectively until the search for a suitable candidate is finalized,” Vodacom Tanzania Chairman Ali Mufuruki said. The statement did not explain the reasons for the government’s decision but the media reported that the authorities believe there are more experienced Tanzanians to take on the task.
Efforts to reach the Labour Commissioner’s office proved futile as telephone calls went unanswered. The Vodacom statement came out following the news that Ms. Mulinge was picked back to Safaricom #ticker: SCOM after nearly five months of unresolved work permit issues, which locked her out of Tanzania. Ms. Mulinge, Safaricom’s former marketing director, should have started her new job in June after taking over from Ian Ferrao. Currently, Mr. Hisham Hendi is the mobile company’s acting chief executive officer.
