The Sanlam Kenya Board of Directors wishes to inform all shareholders and stakeholders that the Board has accepted the resignation of our Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO), Mr. Mugo Kibati with effect from 1st March 2018 to pursue personal and professional business interests.

Subsequently, the Board will commence a local and international executive search process aimed at competitively filling the position of the GCEO.
