Chamber of Commerce boss resigns as organisation’s new strategy kicks off

Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) CEO Matanda Wabuyele who has steered the organization through the first phase of the adoption of its ongoing Strategic Plan has resigned. The Chamber accepted Wabuyele’s resignation just after it passed a number of resolutions aimed at repositioning the Chamber as the apex umbrella body in Kenya and the region.

KNCCI Chairman, Kiprono Kittony said that the resolutions by the National Governing Council (NGC) were in line with the Strategic Plan of KNCCI to be a modern revamped umbrella body for all business organizations in the country.

“The Chamber re-launched and has a Strategic Plan in place that will see it transform into a modern, efficient, corruption free umbrella body for all business organizations in Kenya. This is already evident from the kind of engagements and the level of professionalism in our undertakings since the re-launch,” said Kittony.

“It is in the same line that we resolved that we will be non-political and as the umbrella body of businessmen and women in Kenya urge all the political aspirants and parties to carry out peaceful elections,” he added.

Among the resolutions is a decision by the Chamber to be apolitical from now henceforth, measures to stem corruption within its ranks, measures to address members’ welfare through the formation of a SACCO, measures to recover lost assets and measures to address suppliers/contractors unpaid bills owed by both the national and county governments.

Other resolutions passed include ensuring equity in revenue distribution from fees charged on certificate of origin – which has been a contentious issue – and a plan to roll out corporate social responsibility programs across the country.
