MTN Business Kenya-Enhancing your Business Through ICT


Connectivity is becoming critical area of concern for any business operation with the tech age. As such MTN provides connectivity solutions that help businesses connect efficiently with their networks. Having recently introduced a USD 13 million tier three Data Center in Nairobi to offer businesses a continuity plan or disaster recovery services on critical business data; Ken Chinganya, the MD of MTN Business in Kenya discusses how the firm aims to be a renowned premium portal for business connectivity solutions.


Kennedy Chinganya ; the current Managing Director for MTN Business in Kenya joined MTN Business in April 2015 as the General Manager Finance for Group Enterprise Business Unit. Tasked to improve governance in the enterprise business across all the company’s operations, his prowess propelled the system and saw him being whisked off to Kenya to head MTN Business Kenya within nine months of service.

Kennedy; a South African Citizen of Zambian decent who consider himself a global citizen has worked his entire life in the tech industry for the last 20 years.


Coming from a working background with IBM for 14 years before joining Microsoft Africa for another 5 years, Kennedy who is a certified accountant and a member of  The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA UK) and South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA) brought on board expertise in technological connectivity that is the epitome of MTN Business.


“I have found myself spending more time in the business than actually practicing as an accountant,” he remarks.


Asked why this is so, he says he had little control over it but fell in love with running and understanding business analytics over time. “Everything just felt in place. Multinationals I have worked for; the accounting function is mostly outsourced.


So I found myself more concerned about the functionalities of a business than actually the accounting option,” he reveals.


Mobile Telephone Network (MTN) Group is a renowned premium portal for business connectivity solutions which operates in 24 countries in Africa and Middle East. It was formed in 1994 in South Africa dominantly to offer mobile telephone services specializing in voice.


Converged communications

Mr. Kennedy says that ICT is a very dynamic industry that has evolved very fast. We used to make calls using Phones with SIM Card but we don’t need SIM Card and phones anymore to make calls. Tech disruptors like Vibe, WhatsApp and Skype among others have made that possible.


“MTN Business is also futuristic. We project future disruptions and aligning our strategies accordingly to help businesses optimize their potential. We have close to 450 Kilometres of fiber connectivity in Nairobi, Kisumu, Mombasa and Eldoret.”


Connectivity is becoming an enabler for any business operation. As such we have connectivity solutions that helps businesses connect better and efficiently with their networks.


Brand Products

MTN Business introduced a communication solution, Voice over Internet Protocol –VoIP that allows business-small or big- to take advantage of fully converge products with competitive pricing structures. With its mobile mobility and Wi-Fi connectivity it signifies a fundamental shift in the way business operates and delivers service.


He explains, “If your network already carries your email, business tools and data, why shouldn’t it also carry your telecommunications? Especially when it can save you up to 35 per cent on call cost.


Our VoIP solutions enable thousands of concurrent superior-quality voice calls to be managed over a single network and routed to multiple branches.”
