NAIROBI, Kenya, May 26 – British American Investments Company (Britam) has announced changes in its board.

The company has announced the retirement of Bocar Elimane Dia who has retired by rotation and did not offer himself for re-election as a director of the company.

Britam has also announced the stepping down of Tanui Ghulati from the directorship of the company.

The management has thanked Dia and Ghulati for their contribution to the company during their directorship.

The company also says dividend for the year ended December 31, 2013 of Sh0.25 per ordinary share will be paid on June 20 upon shareholders approval at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled on the same day.
