New KCC flouts procedures in recruitment of new boss

By | April 23rd 2010 at 00:00:00 GMT +0300


Troubled milk processor New KCC is yet again on the spot after the board flouted procedures in the recruitment of a new boss.

According to confidential letters in our possession, the New KCC board contracted consulting firm Deloitte to carry out an independent hiring of the new managing director, but went ahead to influence the process. The board is said to have changed the terms of reference midway by asking Deloitte to interview and present to it six successful candidates for the final interview.

The letter, dated March 5 and signed by New KCC chairman Matu Wamae, also directed Deloitte to avail a list of all applicants, a list of shortlisted and interviewed candidates and a list of six recommended candidates and 10 files detailing the applications for the directors. The board also seemed to hasten the process by saying it wanted to carry out the interviews on March 25, only two days after Deloitte had finished conducting its own interviews and even before it could prepare its report.

"We would therefore like to propose that the board interviews be conducted any day after the week of 29 March 2010," said a letter by Deloitte addressed to the New KCC March and dated March 12.

When contacted, Wamae refused to comment on the issue. "I don’t want to discuss the issue," he said.

However, The Standard has established that three names have been forwarded to the Co-operatives Minister Joe Nyagah.

Milcah Mugo, the acting managing director, is not among the three candidates for the job of getting New KCC back on track.
