KAM Chairman Mucia Kunyiha described Wakiaga as a leader who has brought a tremendous level of energy, enthusiasm, and industry knowledge to the organization.
“She has implemented many critical changes and instituted deep robust structures towards the transformation of the Association, both internally and externally. Phyllis has also been consistent in ensuring that these values are now enshrined in KAM’s ethos.”
Wakiaga joined KAM as the Head of Policy, Research and Advocacy in 2013, and later took over the leadership mantle in 2015 as CEO.
Following her exit, KAM has initiated to replace Wakiaga.
