EPRA reinstates Pavel Oimeke as DG following court order

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 10-The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) has reinstated Pavel Oimeke as its Director-General, two months after he stepped aside following a petition against his reappointment.

EPRA Board Chairperson retired judge Jackton Ojwang said that Oimeke’s reinstatement follows an order issued by the Employment and Labor relations court.

“The board of directors of EPRA has reinstated Pavel Oimeke as the DG following a court order issued by the Employment and Labor relations court in Nairobi on 6th October 2020,” said Ojwang.

Oimeke had stepped aside in August 2020 pending the hearing and determination of a court case contesting his reappointment as Director-General.

This means that Oimoke will be at the helm of the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority for another three years.

The new contract took effect from August 1.

Oimeke had held the position since his first appointment on 1st August 2017.

The board had appointed Mueni Mutunga to take over the DG’s position on an acting capacity from August 17, 2020.
