Kenya: Industrialisation and Enterprise Development cabinet secretary Adan Mohamed has confirmed the extension of Kephar Tande's term for a further three years as the managing director of East African Portland Cement Company (EAPCC). The appointment is effective from 16 November 2013.

His confirmation has been pending since 2013 after the company's board requested that the government renew his term, which ended in October 2013, after being in the position since November 2011.

"I wish to thank the cabinet secretary and president, Uhuru Kenyatta, for the re-appointment. I am committed to fully implementing the strategy that the company has embarked on to raise its market share and to ensure that EAPCC is a leading cement manufacturer, for the welfare of our staff and the benefit of all of our stakeholders," Tande said.
