The Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) has appointed Samuel Maina as the Acting Managing Director (MD) of the media house.

This follows the exit of Naim Bilal, whose contract expired on March 19, 2022.

“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.

“The Board takes this opportunity to thank Dr Naim Bilal for his services at the corporation,” added Maingi.

Maina, a former Vice-President of the Kenya Editors’ Guild, served as KBC’s Editor-in-Chief.
