Africa’s Voices Board of Trustees announced today that Samuel Kimeu will be joining the organisation as the new Executive Director. Samuel comes to Africa’s Voices from Transparency International-Kenya, where he has served as Executive Director for nearly a decade.
Our Co-founder and Executive Director over the past five years, Dr Sharath Srinivasan, is moving on to other duties at the University of Cambridge where the inspiration for Africa’s Voices began.
Samuel’s leadership and background in citizen engagement, anti-corruption and good governance will inform and enhance Africa’s Voices efforts to transform the way citizen voices are listened to and acted upon in decisions that affect their lives. In this role, he will be responsible for driving growth and expansion during a moment of great potential.
Africa’s Voices’ Chair and co- founder, Simon Cairns commented “Dr Srinivasan has done a remarkable job in establishing that the evidence-based insights Africa’s Voices can provide to decision-makers are of significant contribution to their accountability to the people they serve. I am confident that Samuel Kimeu has the experience and ability to lead a fine team to extend the role Africa’s Voices can play in so many areas of social endeavour”.
