Kenya’s telecoms regulator, the Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK) has appointed Francis Wamukota Wangusi as acting director general.
The move followed an order from Kenya’s High for the CCK to replace its incumbent director general Charles Njoroge owing to irregularities stemming from his reappointment earlier in the year.
Wangusi was previously in charge of special projects and broadcasting at the CCK.
He has some 27 years of experience in the communications industry and has held senior at CCK including director, licencing compliance and standards, and head of the secretariat for the digital transition committee.
Prior to joining CCK, Wangusi was a senior lecturer at the Kenya College of Communications Technology (KCCT), now known as the Multimedia University College of Kenya.
Wangusi holds a Masters degree in space sciences from the International Space University, France.
