The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) has appointed Mercy Wanjau as acting director-general to replace Francis Wangusi whose tenure has ended. The board of directors chair, Ngene Gituku, said the appointment has been made to ensure that CA continues to discharge its mandate seamlessly.

Wanjau is a commercial lawyer and regulatory and governance professional currently working with the CA as the director of legal services and board secretary. She has been involved in designing and harmonising policy and regulation in the ICT sector at the local, regional and international level for over 15 years. “Given the strategic responsibilities vested on the authority, we are committed to ensure there is no leadership vacuum and that we deliver on our vision of ‘a digitally transformed nation’,” Gituku said.

Wanjau consulted with KPMG South Africa, Pricewaterhouse Coopers Kenya and also had a stint in commercial legal practice. She has also served on secondment at the ITU, and is on the board of SOS Children’s Villages.

Wangusi took up office in August 2012 and completed two terms as director-general. “There is no doubt Mr Wangusi made his mark in the sector and will remain an important footnote in the history of the ICT industry for a long time to come,” Gituku said. Read more
