Dr Jacinta Wasike Appointed Acting CEO of Pharmacy and Poisons Board
The Pharmacy and Poisons Board has appointed Dr Jacinta Wasike as the Acting CEO after the contract of the long-serving CEO Dr Fred Siyoi expired.

Dr. Jacinta Wasike’s appointment makes history as she becomes the first woman to hold the organization’s top post. She has 20 years of experience in the industry.
Prior to her new position, she served as director of corporate services at the Pharmacy and Poisons Board.
Our efforts to reach the Board’s Chairman and the New CEO were unsuccessful, as their phones went unanswered.
