04 April 2014, 11:37
Nairobi - Richard Langat has finally been appointed the managing trustee of the National Social Security Fund NSSF after a long drawn out saga over the pension fund's leadership.
Langat was chosen ahead of a list of 67 individuals and takes over the role on a full time basis after six months on a caretaker basis.
Adan Mohammed, the chair of the Board of Trustees said that Langat had shown the best skill set to emerge tops in the recruitment process.
" The position was advertised and received great interest and following a thorough selection process, he emerged top, Adan said.
Langat's appointment was however seen by many as proof that the government is protective of corrupt individuals considering Langat;s past record at the large pension fund.
He was involved in the now controversial KES 5 Billion Tassia project and was seen by many as unfit for a job that puts him in firm control of billions of shillings in workers' savings.
And with the soon to start NSSF 2013 law which sees larger collections from Kenyans, he will be in-charge of en even larger pool of money.
