Kibati is an Electrical Engineer and holds a B. Tech (Electrical Engineering) Degree from Moi University (Kenya), a Master of Science Degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) and a Master of Business Administration Degree from George Washington University (USA).

He started his career as an Electrical Engineer at Bamburi Cement (LafargeHolcim) in Kenya and also worked as a Market Development Manager at Lucent Technologies in USA.

Kibati has also held non-executive board positions in various institutions and is currently the Chair of the Board of Directors at Lake Turkana Wind Power Limited.

Announcing the transition at the company Eddy Njoroge, the chairman of the Board said the board was grateful to Mareuse for his leadership of the company over the last three years.

“Notable milestones achieved during his tenure include the expansion of the company’s network by over 50pc, successful rebranding of the company to Telkom and rolling out of a 4G network, resulting in the company becoming the data operator of choice in the market. We wish him the very best in his future endeavours.”

“I look forward to working closely with the staff, board, shareholders and all the company’s partners to get Telkom to the next level of its development in the near future.”
