NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 13 – Energy Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter has made a number of appointments in parastatals under his docket.

Among those appointed are Fernandes Barasa who has been confirmed as the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Kenya Electricity Transmission Company Limited (KETRACO).

Barasa took over in an acting capacity in August 2015, replacing the then agency’s founding boss, Joel Kiilu.

Barasa, who had also been KETRACO’s Chief Manager of Finance and Accounts, took over after the retirement of Kiilu who had already served two terms of three years each since September 2009.

He holds a degree in Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) and MBA in Finance from Kenyatta University alongside being a lead auditor and a Certified Public Accountant of Kenya (CPA-K).

The state-backed KETRACO is in charge of constructing and maintaining high-voltage transmission lines of above 132 kilovolts (kV), while Kenya Power handles lower voltage lines.

On the other hand, CS Keter has confirmed Joe Sang as the CEO of the Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) who has been the acting Managing Director since January 4 this year after taking over from the then acting boss, Flora Okoth.

Before his promotion, Sang had been the General Manager Finance and Strategy at KPC. He is a holder of Master of Business Administration (Strategy), Bachelor of Arts (Economics) and CPA (K).

Meanwhile, Johnson Nchoe has taken over as the head the Geothermal Development Company (GDC).

Nchoe takes over from Paul Ngugi who has been in an acting capacity since November 5, when he took over after the board sent home its six top officials over mismanagement.
