Ezra Chiloba Suspended as Director General of Communications Authority of Kenya

Director General of the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA), Ezra Chiloba, has been suspended.

The suspension was announced in an internal memo by the authority’s chairperson, Mary Mungai, on Monday evening. Christopher Wambua has been appointed as Acting Director General effective immediately until further notice.

The reason for Chiloba’s suspension was not immediately disclosed.

Chiloba was appointed as Director General of the CA in September 2021, after previously serving as CEO of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC). He was set to hold the position for a renewable four-year term.

The suspension of Chiloba is a significant development, given his position as the head of the CA, which is responsible for regulating the communications sector in Kenya. It is unclear at this time how the suspension will impact the CA’s operations.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.
