Major General (Rtd) Joseph Kibwana Appointed KPA Chairman

By Tobby Otum

The government has re-appointed  Major General (Rtd) Joseph Kibwana as Kenya Ports Authority [KPA] board of directors’ chairman.

Kibwana has been appointed for a three year period with effect from July 13 according to a Gazette notice signed by Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani.

The post has been vacant for almost a year after his tenure expired while on May Kibwana was unveiled by Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala as the new chairman of the Kenya Wildlife Service.

“In exercise of the powers conferred by section 4 (a) of the Kenya Ports Authority Act, the Cabinet Secretary for National Treasury and Planning appoints Gen (Rtd) Joseph R. E. Kibwana to be the Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the KPA, for a period of three (3) years, with effect from the 13th July, 2022,” read the gazette notice.

Kibwana was appointed as KWS chairperson in December 2021 after he left as KPA chairperson in June 5, a position which remained vacant until his reappointment last week.

The reappointment of Kibwana comes in handy considering KPA has not made some key decision after him and three other directors’ term ended in June 5 last year with the key parastatal not having a substantive managing director (MD).
