In a letter addressed to the Cabinet Secretary for Transport Mr James Macharia, Manduku said that the resignation would be effective on June 1.

However, before then, he would be proceeding to a terminal leave.

“I write to communicate formally a decision which I have reached after deep introspection and lengthy consultation. As you know, it has been both an honour and a privilege to serve as the head of this most vital installation. The duty of the captain of this ship has been to ensure that she remains steady and that she stays her course,” he said.
