NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 2 – The Rural Electrification Authority (REA) board of directors has appointed Nganga Munyu to the position of Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Nganga Munyu replaces Zachary Ayieko who has worked at REA since its inception in 2007 and whose contract is set to expire on 30th August 2013.

Munyu who is currently the Authority’s General Manager and Head of Corporate Planning was appointed following the Boards acceptance of the decision by Zachary Ayieko not to renew his contract.

Munyu will commenced his duties on July 2, 2013, as the authority embarks on the process to recruit a new CEO

Munyu joined Rural Electrification Authority when it was established in 2007.

He previously worked in the Ministry of Energy where he managed the rural electrification programme since 1999.

REA is one of the youngest State corporations in Kenya, having been established under Section 66 of the Energy Act (No 12 of 2006).

The establishment of the Authority was to increase energy connectivity in most of rural Kenya.

The Authority was therefore created and became operational as a body corporate in 2007 with the objective of accelerating the pace of rural electrification, a function previously undertaken by the Ministry of Energy.
