It is during the 345th Special Board Meeting held on 30th May, 2018, that the board noted that the Port of Mombasa has in the last seven days experienced a breakdown of systems on cargo evacuation which has led to serious congestion of the Port.
Further numerous challenges have been highlighted in the past by the Board to Management with little or no action being taken.

In consultation with the Cabinet Secretary, the board appointed Dr. Arch. Daniel Manduku, DBA, MaaK, Corporate Arch to perform the duties of the Managing Director on an acting capacity for a period of two months pending its further direction.
The decision will pave way for investigations as well as possibility of total overhaul of the Authorities management.
