Mobile Telecommunications Limited (MTC) has been named Namibia’s Most Admired Brand for the second year running.
The announcement was made virtually during the annual Brand Africa Leadership announcement which took place on Tuesday.
This year, Brand Leadership added a new category titled Most Admired Brand during Covid-19 in Namibia and MTC also scooped the award as the Most Admired African Brand in Namibia during Covid-19 while the World Health Organisation took number one spot for the Most Admired Global Brand in Namibia during Covid-19.
Looking at the Most Admired Brands in Africa as a whole, Nike took number one spot, followed by Adidas, Samsung, Apple, Puma, Chanel and Coca Cola in seventh place.
In a surprising move, MTC was named the second Most Admired Local Media Brand in Namibia with NBC taking first place followed by One Africa TV in third place.
Reacting to the results, MTC’s Tim Ekandjo had this to say; “We are truly humbled by the recognition of our brand by the Namibian people. Their perception of our brand is based on experience. We have invested deliberately in our brand, because it’s a brand that is proudly Namibian, relevant to Namibians and a household brand. We are extremely honoured for the accolades, Most Admired Namibian Brand, Most Admired African Brand in Namibia during Covid-19 and second Most Admired Local Media Brand. We promise to do more and we want to assure everybody of our commitment to all Namibians because we are nothing without them.”
