Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) Managing Director Daniel Manduku has resigned barely a week after his arrest over an alleged graft scandal.
Manduku, in a letter to Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia dated March 26, 2020, said he had come to the decision after deep introspection and lengthy consultations.
A few weeks ago, Dr Manduku was arrested by DCI detectives and held for hours while being questioned about recomending the gazzemttment of the Nairobi Inland Cargo Terminal as a KPA facility.
Manduku who will leave office on 1st June 2020 said he “shall be eternally greatful for the support of all the outstanding individuals who have contributed to what we have achieved over the last few years and to you in particular for your leadership and vision.”
Last year, he also hit headlines after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) began a probe into what detectives believed was a Ksh.2.7 billion tender scandal at the authority.
