The Board of the Communication Authority of Kenya has announced the appointment of former IEBC Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba Simiyu, to the position of the Director General of the Authority for a term of four years.
In a statement issued by the CAK’s board chairman Kembi Gitura, Chiloba’s appointment takes effect immediately.
“The appointment follows a competitive recruitment process to fill the position left vacant with the retirement of former Director general, Francis Wangusi,” reads the statement.
Mr. Chiloba is a policy consultant and principal partner with Chimp and Kemp consultancy and an advocate of the High Courts of Kenya.
In 2018, Chiloba was fired from IEBC following his suspension to pave way for an audit to trace misappropriation of funds in the 2017 General Election.
“The Board wishes to thank Mrs Mercy Wanjau, MBS who has been acting in the position of Director General of the Authority,” added the board.
