Polycarp Igathe has resigned from Vivo Energy as the Executive Vice President in charge of Sales for Africa.

It is unclear where the career nomad is headed, but speculations are nigh that he could be headed back to the city hall to deputise the current governor Mike Sonko.

Earlier on, IEBC said it is unaware that the ex-Nairobi Deputy Governor resigned from the County job, saying it never received formal communication.

“We thank Polycarp for his contribution to Vivo Energy and wish him the very best in the future,” said Vivo in a statement.

Omar Benson has been appointed to serve in Igathe’s position on an interim basis.
