In a significant development, the Sports Arts and Social Development Fund (SASDF) has appointed Nuh Ibrahim as its new Chief Executive Officer, heralding a fresh era for the organization. Ibrahim, who officially takes the reins this week, was chosen for this pivotal role three weeks ago.
The unveiling of the new CEO took place during a noteworthy event: the departure of the Kenyan team to the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. Flanked by Sports Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba, Ibrahim was introduced to the press, marking the dawn of a promising tenure.
“We are pleased to announce the appointment of our new CEO for the Sports Arts and Social Development Fund. A formal introduction will follow once he assumes office. We extend our warm welcome to him and anticipate a fruitful collaboration,” Namwamba remarked.
Ibrahim brings to his new position a wealth of experience garnered from his tenure as the manager responsible for risk and compliance at the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC). Prior to this, he served as the senior compliance officer at the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) from 2005 to 2010 before transitioning to IEBC.
Educationally, Ibrahim holds a degree in Economics from the University of Nairobi, complemented by a master’s degree in public policy and administration from Kenyatta University. This solid academic foundation equips him to navigate the multifaceted challenges that lie ahead.
Ibrahim’s appointment coincides with the initiation of the Talanta Hela initiative by the Ministry of Sports. This initiative underscores the government’s commitment to fostering and nurturing sporting talent across the nation. In his capacity as CEO, Ibrahim will play a pivotal role in advancing the objectives of the Talanta Hela initiative. His task involves steering the organization toward becoming a vanguard in the effective implementation of this program, which seeks to provide funding for the holistic development and promotion of sporting talents throughout the country.
With his diverse expertise and an impressive academic background, Nuh Ibrahim assumes leadership at the Sports Arts and Social Development Fund, poised to contribute significantly to the growth and enrichment of Kenya’s sports landscape.
