NEMA appoints acting boss after Wahungu was arrested

Changes at NEMA

NEMA names Mamo Mamo as acting Director General following prosecution of Geoffrey Wahungu

The Board of Directors at National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) has named a new Director General on acting capacity following the prosecution of the current DG Geoffrey Wahungu.

The Board appointed Mamo B. Mamo to take over leadership at the Authority as the court proceedings against Wahungu continue.

Mr Mamo has been serving at NEMA as the deputy director in charge of environmental education and public participation.

Ukur Yattani appointed acting Treasury CS

The announcement was made a few hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta appointed Labour CS Ukur Yattani to take up the Treasury docket on acting capacity.

Henry Rotich and Geoffrey Wahungu are among 27 suspects named by DPP Noordin Haji as co-conspirators in illegal procurement processes in the Arror and Kimwarer dams projects.

Mr Wahungu is accused of fabricating an impact assessment report that gave approvals for the projects to be executed.

Although the suspects have been released from police custody on bail, they have been barred from reporting to their work stations until the case is heard and determined.
