NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenya’s top telecoms operator Safaricom named Peter Ndegwa as its new CEO, Kenya’s independent Citizen TV reported on Thursday.

East Africa’s most profitable company, which is part held by South Africa’s Vodacom and Britain’s Vodafone, has been led since July by an interim CEO after the death of long-serving boss Bob Collymore.
