According to a post by Memeburn, Mxit has announced today that Alan Knott-Craig Jnr. has stepped down as the company’s CEO.
Mxit, which was acquired by Knott-Craig last year is Africa’s largest mobile social network and available in 128 countries including the United Kingdom, United States, Nigeria, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
“While the shareholders and I share the same vision, we differ on how to get there. Therefore, I agreed to go my own way. I wish them all the best for the future. Mxit is Africa’s biggest tech success story, and can be a global success story,” said Knott-Craig Jnr.
CFO Francois Swart will step in as the interim CEO of Mxit until such time as a new CEO is appointed.
