President Uhuru Kenyatta has appointed Simon Gicharu, the founder of Mount Kenya University, to the Water Service Regulatory Board for a three-year term.

Gicharu’s appointment was announced in a gazette notice on August 5.

Since taking office in 2013, Uhuru has been a close friend of Gicharu.

Gicharu was appointed chairman of the Geothermal Development Company first, and then of the Rural Electrification Authority by the President.

Following the earlier expiration of his first term, during which he is credited with assisting in the connection of electricity to Kenyan public primary schools, Uhuru reappointed him for another three-year term in 2019.
