Our attention has been drawn to the story published on April 29th, 2019 by Reuters News Agency regarding the position of Chief Executive Officer at Safaricom PLC.
At the onset, I would like to state that the Safaricom PLC Board has not made a decision on the matter. This will be subject of deliberation by the Board and once a decision is made it will be communicated at the appropriate time.
For clarity, the Board has in place a robust recruitment process that adheres to global best practice in identifying and appointing our senior leadership team.
Finally, I am happy to report that the Board is encouraged by the quick recovery of Bob Collymore who remains firmly in charge and is doing a great job of leading our company and delivering on our purpose of Transforming Lives.
Chairman, Safaricom PLC.
