Nairobi Governor aspirant Evans Kidero has resigned as the Mumias Sugar Company’s director and officially handed over his Company portfolio to concentrate on politics.
At a brief ceremony marked with pomp and color, Kidero who has been at the helm of Mumias Sugar Company as the Managing Director for a period of eight years finally passed over the baton to his successor Peter Kebati.
The new constitution stipulates that all civil servants wishing to contest political positions have to relinquish their positions at least eight months before the date of the general elections, the reason why Kidero had to leave.
“I am happy that after working with you as a big family for eight years, it has come a time when I have to say goodbye. I am happy with the support that you gave me as your boss and I request that you accord the same to my successor,” said Kidero to cheering workers at the firm’s training centre.
The former MD handed over a strategic plan for the growth of the firm that he had prepared to Kebati and wished the new MD success in transforming Mumias Sugar Company into the best company on the continent.
Kebati, who has been serving as the company’s Financial Director thanked Kidero for the exemplary work that he has done at Mumias and promised to carry on with the process of transforming the sugar firm into a powerhouse.
“We will surely miss your expertise but I am promising you that the brains that you have left behind are capable and up to the task,” assured Kebati.
After the hand-over ceremony, hundreds of workers escorted Kidero outside the company’s gates where he hugged several of them before waving goodbye to finally end his reign in a company that had become synonymous with his name.
The former MD left under a heavy escort of top-of-the-range vehicles as he promised to turn around the fortunes of Nairobi County if elected as Governor during the next general elections.
