Three candidates shortlisted in race for top CCK post

Mr Juma Kandie, the director of human resources at CCK, was one of three individuals who did not make it to the final round and the only employee to do so.
The search for the new boss comes at a time when CCK is planning to unveil new lower charges that mobile phone operators pay each other for calls originating from rival networks in what promises to change the face of the telecoms market.
The Mobile Termination Rate (MTR) is set to fall to Sh1.60 a minute from the current Sh2.20, but has not been effected due to lack of approval by the CCK board.
The MTR of Sh1.60 was arrived at as a compromise fee given that Safaricom was calling for a high fee while the CCK and the other three operators—Airtel, Telkom Kenya, and Essar’s Yu — were keen on Sh1.44.
