Former Secretary to the Cabinet Francis Kimemia has been named the Industrial Commercial Development Corporation (ICDC) board chairman, months after he was cleared of corruption charges.

President Uhuru Kenyatta made the appointment through a Kenya Gazette notice Friday with businessman Chris Kirubi being appointed non-executive board chairman at Brand Kenya while former Police Commissioner Major General (Rtd) Hussein Ali and former Tinderet MP Henry Kosgey also bagged key parastatal positions.

Mr Ali will be the NGO’s Coordination Board chairman and Mr Kosgey will chair the Kenya Tourism Fund board.

The appointment of Mr Kimemia to ICDC — a State investment agency - signals his comeback to government, a year after he was suspended for allegedly allocating himself and his close relatives 31 government vehicles.
