The Kenya Ports Authority(KPA) has re-advertised the managing director’s position after shortlisted candidates failed in the interviews.
Three candidates who had been shortlisted failed to reach the pass mark of 70 percent, with National Treasury Cabinet secretary Ukur Yatani ordering the board to do the recruitment afresh.
“I have reviewed the list of the names, scores and ranking of the candidates proposed for the appointment as Managing Director, Kenya Ports Authority, and note that all the candidates scored below the desired threshold of 70 percent in the interview,” said Yatani.
KPA first advertised for the position on April 7, 2020, to replace former MD Daniel Manduku, who resigned on March 26, 2020, over graft allegations.
Those who were shortlisted for the post include Former Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia-Transport Corridor chief executive officer Silvester Kasuku, former Principal Secretary at the Gender ministry Mwanamaka Mabruki, and Murshid Rashid.
Kasuku was third with 63 percent while Mabruki and Rashid scored 67 percent.
Rashid Salim has been holding the position in an acting capacity.
