BBI Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on February 25 2023 saw new board members elected into office.
The elective posts included Vice- Chairman , Secretary and Vice Secretary which went to Maureen Kuyo, Anne Shiyukah and Irene Mbithe respectively.
Charity Wanjira retained her post as a nominated member of the Executive Committee.
BBI Chairman Dan Ole Shani urged the new office bearers to serve with diligence and dedication. He said like the biblical Moses, they may have found themselves in roles that may be new but “they must trust God to equip them to serve.”
“When God called Moses, he complained because he felt inadequate, however, God assured him that He was going to help him execute the huge task that was ahead on him, and, in trusting God he was able to rise to the occasion,” the chairman said.
Shiyukah has been BBI acting secretary for three years.
Mbithe will be stepping in her shoes and will hold the post for two years before fresh elections are held. She is currently one of the teachers in the BBI training school. She hold a BA in Economics, Sociology and English Literature.
Useful for stability
Kuyo said when she was nominated to vie as the Vice Chairperson she was “humbled and felt honoured” at the same time. She is a retired public health research specialist and a trainer at BBI. She is passionate about people giving their lives to Christ and being delivered.
Mbithe has served in leadership roles in the corporate world both locally and abroad.
During the meeting BBI audited accounts were presented.
“Over the past ten years the executive committee has evolved in its composition. Some members have left and new ones have been elected. Some members have stayed since the beginning and that has been useful for stability,” the chairman said.
The Executive Committee manages and controls the affairs of BBI. It has powers to to enact, amend and repeal by-laws and policies for the benefit of BBI.
