Ex-Kenyan Attorney General (AG) Githu Muigai is the public-private partnerships committee’s new chairperson (PPP).
Githu’s appointment was confirmed via a Gazette notice by Treasury minister Ukur Yatani on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
The Public-Private Partnership Unit (PPPU) is a particular purpose unit within the National Treasury.
PPPU serves as the secretariat and technical arm of the PPP Committee, which is tasked with assessing and approving PPP projects.
As the resource centre for best practice and guardian of the PPP process’s integrity, the PPP Unit identifies problems, makes recommendations to the PPP Committee regarding potential solutions, and ensures that projects meet such quality criteria as affordability, value for money, and appropriate transfer of risk.
He was replaced his predecessor Amos Wako in August 2011 but resigned in 2018.
