Liquid Telecom Zambia has appointed Susan M’kandawire Mulikita as its new CEO, to accelerate growth and market penetration in the Southern African country.
An experienced ICT professional, Susan becomes the first female CEO to join the company’s regional executive leadership team. She is also the first female CEO responsible for ICT in Zambia.
Based in Zambia, Mulikita joined the company on 14 January 2019 with more than 20 years of ICT experience in her bag. She is expected to use this to bring greater synergy to the Southern Africa region and enable more customers to capitalise on Liquid Telecom’s range of services.
“This senior appointment marks an exciting new step in Liquid Telecom’s strategy to build Africa’s digital future. Susan’s appointment is particularly significant as it demonstrates Liquid Telecom’s continued focus on diversity and inclusiveness, especially at a regional level.”

A graduate of Law from the University of Zambia, Susan also holds a Master of Laws (ICT) from the Buckinghamshire New University (UK). She is also a qualified practitioner of Telecoms/ICT Policy, Law, Regulation and Management.
Her long period of experience includes operating at a senior level for both private sector and public organisations. This includes Airtel where she was responsible for telecommunications and ICT law, policy, regulation and stakeholder management.
“This is an exciting time to be joining Liquid Telecom Zambia. The company offers superior service at both carrier and retail level and is poised to compete successfully in the Zambian ICT and telecoms landscape,” Susan said on her appointment.
“I look forward to working collaboratively with our partners, government and other stakeholders to deliver innovative and compelling ICT and telecoms services. I am also very pleased to join a brand that promotes equal opportunities and inclusive leadership at the highest levels of the organisation,” she added.
