The Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (Kemsa) acting chief executive officer has won the prestigious African Governance Award, 2024.

The award, based on a rigorous selection process and expert assessment, recognised Dr Andrew Mulwa’s role in Africa’s political and socio-economic renaissance.

According to a statement from Dr Baroness Paulette Kporo, the event’s CEO, Kemsa is a standard-setting public institution both locally and internationally.

“This is the result of a comprehensive and most credible awards selection process which has involved your nomination by the African public, authentication of your nomination claims with regards to your conduct, performance and impact by our dedicated research consultants, and ultimately an expert assessment of same compared to the other nominees,” said the organisers in the communication to Dr Mulwa.

The award will be presented during the Pan African Governance Conference in Mauritius, organised by the Business Executive Media Group, between February 7 and 10.

The conference will be attended by, among others, governance experts from the public and private sector across the world, top government officials, politicians, corporate executives and civil society leaders.

“Thus, the event presents one of the biggest opportunities ever for both public sector and private sector chieftains seeking networking opportunities to establish strategic alliance and partnerships and to consummate transactions such as contracts, financing and arrangements,” said Dr Kporo.

The scheme identifies and recognises institutions that have made exemplary contributions to good governance.
