Nairobi,KENYA:Cabinet Secretary CS Henry Rotich has welcomed the move by the Kenya Accountants and Secretaries National Examinations Board KASNEB to reposition its brand and image.
Mr. Rotich added that KASNEB has been instrumental in shaping the economy of the country saying that 4000 accountants certified by KASNEB work for the treasury.

Prof. Margaret Kobia, Chairperson KASNEB added that continuous rejuvenation of the board would help ensure graduates enter the market fully equipped with the skills required by the industry especially in the areas of good governance, finance and accounts.
CEO KASNEB Pius Nduati concluded that students from all over the country need not queue at their Nairobi offices because they can log their details into the new digitized portal.The accounting regulation body launched a new portal aimed at improving their service delivery.
