Communication Authority of Kenya Director General Ezra Chiloba has been suspended. The suspension was announced in an internal memo by CA board chair Mary Mungai on Monday, September 18, 2023.
Christopher Wambua, who has been serving as the Director of Consumer and Public Affairs at CA since 2016, has been appointed as Acting Director General until further notice.
“Following a meeting of the Authority’s Board held on 18th September 2023, resulting in the suspension of the Director General, I am pleased to inform all staff of the appointment of Mr. Christopher Wambua as a Director General in Acting Capacity effective today until further notice,” reads the memo in part.
The reasons for Chiloba’s suspension have not been disclosed. However, it comes two years after his appointment to the docket and follows his sacking as Chief Executive Officer of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in October 2018.
