Moustapha Naïte: In Guinea, it is all about the networks

Moustapha Naïte was appointed director general of the Direction Nationale du Patrimoine Bâti Public in 2010A young and rising state apparatchik who started off in the business world with an internet cafe, Naïte is a close adviser to President Alpha Condé.

After Condé's election in late 2010, he appointed Moustapha Naïte as director general of the Direction Nationale du Patrimoine Bâti Public, a state body that oversees public buildings.

Naïte's detractors criticise him for what they saw as the unsuccessful management of the 50th anniversary of independence under the former government of prime minister Lansana Kouyaté in 2008.

He returned to Guinea in 2005 after studying in the United States for several years and switched from the Kouyaté to the Condé camp out of pragmatism.

Naïte's Mouna Internet Technologies was opened in Conakry in 2002 with an internet café and ten computers.

From an yearly profit of $10,000, he has seen his fortunes grow to an annual revenue of around $4m.
