After close to five years without a substantive Commission Secretary, the Commission has finally recruited Ms. Betty Sungura Nyabuto to head the NGEC secretariat following a competitive recruitment process. Previously, Betty Nyabuto had served as a deputy chief executive officer at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC.
Ms. Nyabuto reported to office and was received by the board led by Chairperson Dr. Joyce Mutinda and senior members of the secretariat. In her welcoming remarks, Dr. Mutinda urged the secretariat to accord the new Commission secretary full cooperation for seamless transition. The appointment of Ms. Sungura saw the immediate former acting CEO Mr. Sora Katelo resume his Director of Corporate Services post while Mr. Paul Kuria returned as the Director of Programmes and research.
Ms. Nyabuto has pledged to lead the secretariat in implementing programmes and building the capacity of staff to respond to the multi-dimensional aspects of the equality agenda.
