KenGen in search of new CEO to replace Albert Mugo (Standard Media)
Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) has begun the search for the replacement of outgoing chief executive Albert Mugo.
The company, which generates about 80 per cent of electricity consumed in Kenya, said the new chief executive would assume office in August this year. This means Eng Mugo’s one-year extension could be cut to eight months.
Under Mugo, KenGen has substantially grown electricity generation through geothermal and has overseen the growth of the firm’s installed capacity from about 1,200 megawatts when he took to the current 1,630 MW. KenGen has procured the services of consultancy firm PKF to undertake the recruitment of the new CEO.
