Mr Manduku, in a letter to Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia dated March 26, 2020, said he had decided after deep contemplation and lengthy consultations.

The embattled MD, while saying the opportunity to serve had been an honour and privilege, added that he will be proceeding on terminal leave until his resignation takes effect.

“The duty of the captain of this ship has been to ensure that she remains steady and that she stays her course,” he said.

“I shall be eternally grateful for the support of all the outstanding individuals who have contributed to what we have achieved over the last few years and to you in particular for your leadership and vision.”


“I do hereby tender my resignation, which I hope you will accept, effective June 1, 2020. I am immediately proceeding on terminal leave until then.”

Mr Manduku was early this month arrested for unlawfully recommending the gazettement of the Nairobi Inland Cargo Terminal as a KPA facility.
