KPA boss, Police sacked over corruption allegations

09 February 2016, 17:17

Nairobi - Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) Managing Director Gichiri Ndua, top officials and police officers at the Mombasa Port have been sacked over corruption.

The Star reported that top KPA officials who were sent packing include general managers in charge of human resources, operations, legal, corporate services and the head of security.

Mombasa Port OCPD and the county criminal investigations officer have also been sacked.

The announcement was made Tuesday at a press conference held by Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery, his Transport counterpart James Macharia, Kenya Revenue Authority Commissioner-General John Njiraini and Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet.

They said the move is aimed at ridding the port of corruption. The radical measures were taken on the recommendations by an inter-agency committee formed by President Uhuru Kenyatta to look at issues affecting the port.

The Daily Nation in a similar report stated that GMs Twalib Khamis (Operations), Justus Nyarandi (Corporate services) and Board and Legal services (Muthoni Gatere) and Security head Mohamed Morowa were sent on early retirement.

"Several serving staff at Kenya Ports Authority had failed to fully exercise their duties to stop or mitigate the possibility of compromising operations and delivery," CS James Macharia said.

"Several key changes at the top management were required in order that the institution may deliver on its mandate."

Catherine Mturi will replace Ndua, who was in office for five years, in acting capacity while Patrick Nyoike who is head of Financial Accounting will serve as Finance general manager.
