Until her appointment, Rebecca Miano has been serving as the company’s secretary and legal affairs director since 2008. The outgoing MD Mugo, on the other hand, has held the top job since January 15, 2014. His tenure at the power producer ended in January this year but KenGen decided to give him a one-year extension.
