President Uhuru Kenyatta has appointed Safaricom executive Sitoyo Lopokoiyot to chair the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital Board for a period of three years, starting 29th March 2021.
In May last year, he was appointed as the interim CEO of MPEA Africa, in an interim capacity as he still serves as Chief Financial Services Officer.
In the internal memo, Safaricom announced to staff that Sitoyo Lopokoiyit was appointed the head of the newly created joint venture between the telco and South Africa’s Vodacom Group to run the M-Pesa platform.
Sitoyo Lopokoiyit rejoined Safaricom in April 2018 from Vodacom Tanzania where he had been as the M-Commerce Director from October 2015.
As the Chief Financial Services Officer, he is currently responsible for growing the M-PESA platform to a fully-fledged financial platform.
He is in charge of New Business Ventures, Product Management and Development for both Consumer and Enterprise.
