kestaff3The IPA Kenya President, Mr. Alfred Osur, officiated the farewell ceremony in honour of the long-serving Office Administrator Ms. Lorna Wawuda, on 29th April 2021. The short ceremony took place at the National Police Service Headquarters, Jogoo House ‘A’ in Nairobi, and was attended by representatives of the National Executive Board and IPA Kenya Section members.

Mr Jared Ojuok, Secretary General, Ms. Pauline Munyi, 3rd Vice President, Mr Mutiso Lelli and Mr Francis Sunda, both members from the Nairobi IPA Region, were also present. Other members, unable to attend due to the current Covid-19 protocols, sent messages of good will, and wished Lorna well in her future endeavours.


In his address, the President thanked Lorna for her steadfast and honest services rendered to IPA Kenya over the six years period. He also described Lorna's leadership as that of great humility and respect for all members. The President noted that Lorna had demonstrated deep insight and knowledge in her work, and as a result, the Kenyan Section had grown exponentially during her tenure.

President Osur also took the time to welcome Ms. Catherine Mashame, the incoming Office Administrator to the IPA Kenya Management team, and promised her his utmost cooperation and guidance as she assumes her new duties. Ms. Mashame was selected following a competitive interview and assessment of applicants for the position. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Human Resources Management from Rongo University and comes with five years of experience from the corporate world, as well as proven communication skills. During her 1-month induction, she has proven to be a team player and an outgoing person with good interpersonal relations. We are confident that she will deliver the mandate.


Members expressed their gratitude towards Lorna by showering her with gifts of every kind: cash and other household items. Ms. Wawuda, who was accompanied by close family members, could not hide her joy. She thanked the members profusely, and pledged to support IPA Kenya’s activities in the future.

Jared Ojuok, Secretary General IPA Kenya
