Nairobi — The Ministry of Petroleum and Mining has named Hudson Andambi the interim Managing Director of the Kenya Pipeline Company, following the arrest of Joe Sang and four other officials Friday morning.
Principal Secretary in the State Department for Petroleum, Andrew Kamau, said the appointment was made following consultations with the company's board Chairperson, John Ngumi.
Sang's arrest is linked to an investigation into alleged corruption in the construction of a Sh1.8 billion Kisumu Oil Jetty.
His arrest comes two days after the KPC Board invited the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to probe claims of dubious spillage reports that may have seen the company lose over 20 million litres of fuel estimated to be worth Sh2.3 billion.
