Dr. Mandura was appointed on behalf of the congested Catherine Mturi-Wairi six months ago at Mombasa Harbor.

Manduku was initially employed for three months from May 30, but was extended until November 1.

Standard Deloitte Consulting has named several candidates as candidates, including current and former managers who applied for the job right before their November 16 deadline.

Joseph Kibwana of the KPA Board of Gen (Rtd) chose a competent employer at the port instead of checking Manduku.

Political leaders and KPA workers have expressed concern about the alleged commercial and political interests and warned that the process should be on top.

Dock Workers Union Secretary General Simon Sang said unions favored Manduk and improved port performance, including cargo attraction, through standard gauge rail.

The representative said that it promoted rapid negotiation of collective bargaining negotiation, which raised the salary of minimum wage workers by 16% and paid the highest 10%.

Manduku was former Secretary General of the National Construction Authority. In 2016, he failed to successfully apply for harbor work.

Meanwhile, the number of containers in the inland container warehouse (ICD) dropped to 5,138 from 10,270 TEU (equivalent to 20 feet) recorded in September, according to the KPA report.

TEU is used to indicate the cargo carrying capacity of the vessel or the cargo handling capacity of the loading terminal.

Shipping cargo at the port also increased 40% from 56,740 TEU to 79,510 TEU this year from January to September this year.
