Chipukeezy, who previously served as an independent board member at NACADA since his appointment in 2018, took to his social media to share the news.

Chipukeezy was elected to replace Mr Peterson Mwai who served in that position until December 2020.
Confirming the change in leadership, NACADA released a statement on Wednesday.
“NACADA Board Chairperson, Prof Mabel Imbuga, said that Mr. Muasya will be instrumental in steering the Authority’s mandate as he resonates well with the youth and young persons who are our critical target group for our prevention campaigns,” it read in part.
