The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) on Thursday announced the appointment of Esther Ngari as the Acting Managing Director.

Ms Ngari will now step into the shoes left by KEBS boss Lt. Col (Rtd) Bernard Njiraini, who was among 27 government officials suspended by President William Ruto on Wednesday.

Prior to her appointment to top office, Ms Ngari served as the State agency’s Director of Standards Development and Trade.

This will however not be her first stint as Acting Managing Director, as she also served in the same position last year when Col (Rtd) Njiraini’s term came to an abrupt end following the court ruling that dismissed his appointment as being irregular.

KEBS said it had also resolved to replace the suspended Director of Quality Assurance and Inspection, Dr Geoffrey Muriira, with Bernard Nguyo, also in an acting capacity.

The State agency went ahead to announce more changes as follows; Zachariah Lukorito (Acting Director of Standards Development and Trade), Peter Makan (Acting Chief Manager, Quality Assurance – Nairobi), Mutuma Muthuri (Acting Manager, Inspection – Mombasa Port Office), and Henry Sambul (Acting Assistant Manager, Kilindini).
