The chief executive position at Cenored has been filled by Robert Kahimise, who assumed duty on 1 November and signed his contract last Friday.

This position was previously filled by August Kahimumu, who served in an acting position since April this year after founding executive officer Mburumba Appolus left the company.

The chairperson of the Cenored board of directors, Moses Matyayi, said at a brief ceremony on Friday that Cenored was privileged to have one of the most experienced executives in the country joining their ranks.

Matyayi added that it is an advantage to have Kahimise, who has experience working in the electricity industry.



Experience

Kahimise was previously the chief executive of the City of Windhoek – a position he held for four years. Kahimise's prior experience includes a stint at the ministry of mines and energy, after which he joined the private sector in Rosh Pinah before moving to the Ohlthaver & List Group. Kahimise also worked at the Electricity Control Board (ECB) and later moved over to Erongo Red.

Kahimise said affordability and access to electricity are some of the key issues that he plans to tackle.

“We are also cognisant of aging infrastructure that needs to be upgraded to ensure that our key towns remain with power irrespective of challenges.”

He added that he is excited to return to the energy sector.

Cenored has been in existence for over 15 years and aims to maintain efficiency within the electricity sector.
