Kudos to Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter on energy reforms

By JULIAN KAMAU | Mar 10th 2017 | 1 min read

Energy and Petroleum Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter this week said the country would have to wait much longer before he appoints substantive chief executives for seven key parastatals in his ministry.
