He has, however, proceeded on terminal leave.

"I do hereby tender my resignation, which I hope you will accept, effective 1st June, 2020. I am immediately proceeding on terminal leave until then," the letter reads.

On Friday, the Nation learnt that the board was holed up in a meeting to deliberate on who will take over Mr Manduku's position in an acting capacity.

The meeting was being headed by KPA chairman Joseph Kibwana who, when contacted, said, "Sorry, I can't talk now".
