With the tenure of IMO Secretary General Kitack Lim ending this year, the agency has set in motion the process of searching for a successor.
One of the contenders for the position is Nancy Karigithu, currently Kenya’s Ambassador and Special Envoy for Shipping and Blue Economy.
Both Kenya’s President and the African Union have already endorsed Amb. Karigithu’s IMO candidacy. However, her endeavor to lead IMO comes at a time the agency is facing backlash from some maritime stakeholders. There is a feeling that IMO is failing to foster a global consensus on some of the critical issues troubling the shipping industry.
