Kenya Power Appoints Female Engineer to its Board
The Founder & CEO of TSAVO Oilfield Services, Engineer Elizabeth Rogo, has been appointed Non-Executive Director on the Board of Kenya Power and Lighting Plc, Kenya’s state utility company. Elizabeth is an accomplished energy professional who was recently appointed as the President for East Africa at the African Energy Chamber.
Kenya Power is said to have been making steady progress towards providing safe, secure and reliable electricity to Kenyan households and industries for several years.

“Elizabeth is solidly pro-energy for all and for economic expansion. Elizabeth understands that having sustainable power is key for creating jobs and spreading economic prosperity across Kenya. We have no doubt that she will bring the highest ethical standards to executing her job,” stated NJ Ayuk, Executive Chairman at the African Energy Chamber.

We sincerely congratulate her on this appointment,” added Ayuk.
Eng. Rogo’s appointment is yet another demonstration of her ability to build consensus around key energy issues in Kenya and East Africa.
