The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) director for roads safety Njeri Waithaka has handed in her resignation letter.
Ms Waithaka has handed in her resignation letter three weeks after police raided the agency’s offices.
Confirming her resignation, NTSA director-general Francis Meja stated: “I’m aware of Ms Waithaka’s case. She has handed in her resignation letter.
“As to when exactly she is expected to leave the agency plus other restructuring plans we may have are private information within our organization I may not be able to disclose to you at the moment,” Meja told Business Daily.
According to a source, Ms Waithaka is claimed to have cited “personal reasons” for not seeking an extension of her term.
She is noted to have handed over her resignation letter to the board a couple of days ago.
Ms Waithaka took over from Mr Matthew Munyao whose contract was terminated in January 2016.
During the recent police raid at the agency offices, other senior managers working in the licensing, information technology, inspection and the registration of motor vehicles departments were arrested for allegedly facilitating registration of the DusitD2 terror attack vehicle.
