Executive Director at Kenya Roads Board

The History of KRB dates back to 1992 when the Kenya Government together with the Road Maintenance Initiative (RMI) World Bank team hosted a Road Sector Stakeholders Seminar, to address the deteriorating condition of the road network in Kenya and the constraints to timely and proper road maintenance. The identified constraints were institutional, managerial and financial. It was resolved that a sustainable source of funding be established and the existing road management institutional set-up be reviewed. In 1993, the Road Maintenance Levy Fund (RMLF) Act was enacted, providing a sustainable source of funding for the maintenance of the road network. In 1995, with assistance of the European Commission, the Road Sector Institutional Study was commissioned.
