MTN Group’s CEO earns $1.1m salary in 2022 despite decline in past years

Despite a significant reduction in his take-home pay over the previous two fiscal years, Ralph Mupita, President and CEO of MTN Group, Africa’s largest telecom services provider, is one of Africa’s highest-earning CEOs.

Mupita’s annual remuneration dropped significantly to $1.13 million in 2022, compared to the $1.4 million he received in 2021, even as MTN Group reported robust profits and revenues at the end of its 2022 fiscal year.

Data tracked by Billionaires.Africa revealed that the 18.8 percent decrease in Mupita’s total earned remuneration can be attributed to a decline in his short-term incentive (STI) allocations for 2022, tied to the incremental progress made toward the company’s targets.

Mupita’s STI earnings experienced a 30.7 percent decline, falling from $893,000 in 2021 to $619,000 in 2022. This occurred despite the group’s profits rising from R16.99 billion ($901.3 million) in 2021 to R24.26 billion ($1.29 billion) at the close of the 2022 fiscal year.
