AFROSAI-E CEO Appointment Process

The 14th AFROSAI-E Governing Board Meeting was held in Nairobi, Kenya from 8 – 11 May 2017 and the outcomes of this meeting will be made available shortly. However, we would like to provide some contextual information regarding a decision that was made in the closed session of the Governing Board meeting regarding the appointment of the new AFROSAI-E CEO, as it has come to our attention that this information has already communicated outside of the organisation. The contract of the current CEO, Mr Wessel Pretorius, will expire at the end of 2017 and, following a rigorous selection process, the Board approved the recommendation that Mrs Meisie Nkau be appointed as the new CEO. This appointment process must however still be finalised and, the announcement on the new CEO will therefore only be formally communicated when this process has been completed.
