The second Board of Directors of Kenya Forest Service and the Senior Management have just concluded a three day Corporate Governance Workshop in Naivasha’s Great Rift Valley Lodge on the foot of the Ebburu Ranges.
The workshop was conducted by Manpower Services and was opened by Permanent Secretary in Ministry of Forestry & Wildlife, Mr. M.A.M. Wa Mwachai. In his opening remarks, he asked the Board to ensure that they are accountable in all they do. ‘Kenyans have huge expectations on KFS, despite enormous challenges both internally and externally’, he said. One of the facilitators, Mr. Michael Ndunda said that there is no other organisation that carries Kenyans on its shoulders like KFS.
The Director KFS, Mr. D.K. Mbugua, said that this was the second such workshop that the Board and Management were attending since KFS became a parastatal in 2007. Apart from internalising the principles of Corporate Governance in the workings of the organisation , he said that the workshop affords the participants a chance to bond and brainstorm.
