AFA seeks new Director General


NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 5 – The Agriculture and Food Authority (AFA) is searching for a new Director General (DG).

In a notice on local dailies, AFA called on all eligible candidates to submit their applications.

Applicants should have a bachelor’s degree in agricultural fields and at least 15 years of work experience, among others.

“In line with the provisions of Section 10 (1) of the AFA Act No. 13 of 2013 and the Mwongozo Code, the Board of Agriculture and Food Authority is seeking to competitively recruit a qualified Kenyan professional to fill the position of the Director General,” AFA said.

“The Director General is responsible for the day-to-day management of the affairs of the Authority, is the accounting officer, secretary to the Board and answerable to the Board.”

In May, Willis Audi was appointed the authority’s acting DG after Beatrice Nyamwamu exited.

AFA is a state corporation that regulates the crop sector in Kenya to ensure compliance with the regulatory framework, standards, and codes of practice.
