KPC gets new managers

NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 16 – Samuel Maluki has been replaced as Chairman of the Kenya Pipeline Company board of directors barely two months into the position.

In a gazette notice, Energy Minister Kiraitu also revoked the appointments of fellow directors George Wachira, Ahmed Mohammed and John Mathenge from the board.

In their place Mr Murungi appointed Alex Kazongo, Rafii Abdalla Salim, Bernard Kipkirui and Waithaka Kioni.

The board has found itself under heavy criticism in the recent past over on goings in the company especially after revelations of an oil scam involving Triton Company in which the government is said to have lost 7.6 billion shillings.

Mr Maluki replaced James Kenani in January who was dismissed alongside managing director George Okungu after revelations of irregular dealings between KPC and Triton Petroleum Company.

The government has already issued a warrant of arrest for Triton boss Yagnesh Devani and sought the assistance of Interpol Police.

Mr Okungu has also been questioned by the Kenya Anti Corruption Commission over his role in the under dealings at KPC. KACC Director Aaron Ringera has indicated that investigations into the scam are at the final stages and will be complete by the end of this month.

Towards the end of last year and earlier in the year the country experienced fuel shortages, but reports indicated that the shortages were stage managed. KPC has however defended itself over the shortage instead blaming oil companies.
