Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) Managing Director Daniel Manduku, who is facing graft charges related to Inland Container Depot scandal, has resigned.

Manduku resigned in a letter addressed to Transport CS James Macharia and copied to the KPA board.

His leave will be effective June 2020 although he indicated he would immediately proceed on terminal leave.

"I do hereby tender my resignation, which I hope you will accept, effective 1st June 2020. I'm immediately proceeding on terminal leave until then," Manduku letter read in part.
