Following the appointment of Major General Mohammed Abdalla Badi to head Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) by President Uhuru Kenyatta, the board of Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) has made another surprise move in its recent appointment.
Badi has been attending Cabinet meetings after taking an oath of secrecy. He was tasked with the responsibility of transforming the city and given 100 days to deal with corruption and dismantle cartels that have held the city at ransom for years.
The Board of Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) has appointed the former Chief of Defence Forces Samson Mwathethe as its chairperson.
His appointment was done by Directors of the KenGen at a virtual Annual General Meeting held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, but the decision was communicated today November 4, 2020.
Mwathathe will take over from Joshua Choge whose one-year term as KenGen’s board Chairman had ended.
His appointment was announced by KenGen chief executive officer Rebecca Miano who praised him for his ability to lead the company.
“The chairman brings to the organization immense wealth of experience in strategy and leadership which will steer KenGen to greater heights as we grow our footprint across Africa,” said KenGen Managing Director Rebecca Miano.
“Under General Mwathethe’s leadership, KenGen is committed to strengthening its stakeholder relations as we continue to build a responsive and dynamic business that takes into account emerging technological advancements and social trends,” she added.
