“I am happy to tell you that the government has appointed you as chief executive officer and postmaster-general in the service of the Postal Corporation of Kenya for a period of three years with effect from February 13, 2023.” the letter of appointment read.
Mr. Tonui defeated 18 other contenders, including Milka Mugwe, the general manager, and Peter Korir, the former GM of Finance.
