Top local and international Chief Executive Officers have warned government against mixing politics with business.
The CEO’s including Price Water Coopers boss Francis Kamulegeya, KPMG Senior Partner Benson Ndungu, Deloitte’s George Opio and Citibank’s Chinedu Ikwudinma say businesses are normally disrupted by political events like elections.
Addressing a joint news conference ahead of the upcoming East African business summit, Kamulegeya said the number of political events should be limited to avoid such disruptions and cut down government expenditure.
The East African Business Summit is a meeting that brings together CEO’s of different companies to discuss issues affecting the integration process.
This year’s summit is to be held in the Rwandan capital Kigali in June.
