Murkomen appoints Kenya Ports Authority MD
Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen has appointed Captain William Kipkemboi Ruto as the Managing Director Kenya Ports Authority for a term of three years.
The agency has been running without a substantive head for the last three years when the recruitment has been marred by unsuccessful attempts at filling the post.
The CS said Mr Ruto is ” a seasoned mariner having started his career in 1991 at KPA as a cadet marine deck officer before rising through the ranks to be a General Manager, Operations and later a Habour Master.” Mr Ruto was working as the General Manager Kisumu Port at the time of his appointment.
At least 12 individuals had been shortlisted for the interviews for the position of the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) managing director: Captain William Ruto (General Manager of Kisumu Port), Sudi Amani Mwasinago (General Manager of Operations), and Engineer Vincent Sidai (General Manager of Lamu Port) made the shortlist of senior managers.
Others who made it to the list included Stanley Chai, Dennis Lewa, Halima Ali Omar, Alex Kazongo, Dr Jane Chepkorir Barus, Rachel Balu Musyoki, Modest Kitimo Kombo, Nicodemus Odera Odongo, and Dr Maingi.
