Mr. Peter Ndegwa, has already proven that before by inventing Senator Keg. He demonstrated his outstanding innovative skills back in 2004 at EABL. He was the man who spearheaded the program that launched Senator Keg. At that time, EABL, with the support of the government, was planning to introduce a bonafide beer into the Kenyan market that is affordable to the lower-income consumers.
Considering his creative skills, that makes Ndegwa the best corporate leader to steer Safaricom into the future.
