The National Social Security Fund (NSSF) has announced the appointment of David Mwangangi as interim CEO effective November 22.
This follows the exit of Antony Omerikwa from the helm of the agency.
“Today(Monday) is my last day as the CEO of NSSF and marks a momentous change of leadership in an institution that I have steered with dedication as a team leader for over seven years,” Omerikwa said in a statement.
