Kenya Airways’ Independent non-executive director John Ngumi has stepped down after serving four years on the board.
“The Board announces the resignation of Mr John Ngumi as an independent non-executive director of the company,” Kenya Airways Board of Directors chairman Michael Joseph said in a statement on Friday.
In his place, Mr James David Kabereri has been appointed as an independent non-executive director in the interim pending an annual general meeting.
“My departure is motivated by my belief that now the tough work of stabilising KQ is starting to bear fruit, it is the right time for others to come in and build on the transformational platform that the Board and Management of KQ has created,” Mr Ngumi told KQ’s board.
“I remain a firm believer in KQ’s strategic and economic importance to Kenya, and I am confident that before long Kenyans will all recognise that KQ is worthy and deserving of the critical and invaluable support it has received and continues receiving, from the Government.”
