Kenya Ferry Services (KFS) board of directors will recruit a new managing director next month, an official has said. Acting Chairman Mshenga Ruga said Sunday the new KFS boss will be recruited through a competitive process as the position will be advertised.
He will be replacing long-serving Managing Director Musa Hassan, who was retired on January 6, a day after President Uhuru Kenyatta made an impromptu visit to the firm. Although Musa was due to complete his second contractual term in office by April this year, his retirement came early after he was sent on terminal leave amid accusations that ferry services is inefficient.
Finance Manager Bakari Gowa has been appointed by the board to replace Musa in an acting capacity until a substantive MD is appointed. Musa came to the spotlight late last year following frequent breakdowns of ferries, which management linked to limited resources, ageing and shortage of vessels.
