Dr Wario has said he will prioritise deepening competition in sectors such as the digital economy, agriculture, financial services and promoting the competitiveness of SMEs.

“Going forward, I shall prioritize deepening competition in sectors such as the digital economy, agriculture, financial services, and promoting the competitiveness of SMEs,” commented Dr Wario in a statement shared by the Authority.

“As I take lead of the team of CAK colleagues, I am fully aware that teamwork is paramount in order to advance the mandate, vision and mission of the AuthorityAuthority.”

Dr Roba has over fifteen (15) years of experience in applied research, policy-making, and the development of legislative frameworks.

Dr Roba was also a Senior Policy Analyst at the National Treasury and Planning’s Fiscal and Economic Affairs Department. He was responsible for formulating mineral resource revenue use policy and fiscal rules and developing a legislative framework for managing mineral resource revenues.

Dr Roba has also served as a Senior Lecturer in environmental economics at the University of Eldoret and Moi University. He earned his PhD from the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands) and an MSc from the University of York (UK).

Amb. Nelson Ndirangu, Chairman of the Board, CAK, said Mr Kariuki has contributed to improving Kenya’s investment climate by developing regulations/guidelines that created transparency and predictability in the competition enforcement process.

“We owe immense gratitude to Mr Kariuki, who departs after overseeing the CAK’s transformation from a Department within the Ministry of Finance to a semi-autonomous institution that is held in high regard by stakeholders, nationally, regionally and internationally.”
