Taita Taveta, Kenya, August 1, 2022  Taita Taveta Wildlife Conservancies Association (TTWCA) wishes to announce the appointment of Alfred Mwanake as the new Chief Executive Officer following the approval of the association’s Board.

Mwanake will be in charge of the TTWCA secretariat and will be responsible for maintaining relationships and partnerships with key partners and stakeholders, particularly the Taita Taveta county government.

He will also concentrate on developing plans for the association’s member conservancies in their crucial role in conserving the greater Tsavo ecosystem.

His appointment comes after more than six years of coordinating the activities of the association.

Half a decade of directing and harmonizing TTWCA operations provided a great learning opportunity and grew his resolve to actively protect and enrich the Tsavo ecosystem, which he now brings to the new position.

Working as a coordinator, Mwanake achieved significant milestones, such as the consolidation of conservation partners to collaborate, championing the growth of the association by lobbying for the implementation of several projects, including the development of the Rangers’ Multi-Agency Hub at Kasigau Conservancy and the launch of the TTWCA headquarters offices.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the TTWCA board for entrusting me with this monumental task of taking TTWCA to new heights.”

TTWCA board member Wabosha Kamattah explained that the rapid expansion TTWCA made it prudent to appoint someone of Mwanake’s cadre to lead the association.

“This a well-deserved promotion. There will be more responsibilities, higher targets and shorter deadlines, but history will show that he accomplished a lot. TTWCA believes he will achieve even more.

Congratulations, Mr. CEO, and best wishes for the future.
