“To ensure continuity and smooth running of the corporation, the Board of Directors held a special Board meeting today (March 25, 2022) and appointed Samuel Maina to the position of Acting Managing Director with immediate effect, until the position is substantively filled through a competitive process,” Benjamin Maingi, the chairperson of the Board said in an internal memo dated Friday, March 25.
