Hon Hassan Abdi Dukicha, a former MP, has been appointed to the Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute (KMFRI) Board of Management. He will serve for a period of three years with effect from the 5th January, 2021. The appointment, by Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Cooperatives Cabinet Secretary Hon Peter Munya, was published in the Kenya Gazette dated 8th January, 2021.

Hon Dukicha, a self-driven and diligent professional, studied at Mount Kenya University, where he pursued a Bachelor of Business Management degree. Previously he attended Kenya College of Communication Technology (KCCT) in Mbagathi between 1992 and 1994 before joining Kenya Institute of Management (KIM) in Nairobi between 2009 and 2010.

Born in 1971 in Galole, Tana River County, Hon Dukicha threw his hat in the ring in the 2013 Galole constituency parliamentary race and emerged the winner. The focused politician was thereafter appointed a member of the Departmental Committee on Environment & Natural Resources, and also a member of Catering and Health Club Committee.

During his tenure as Galole MP, Hon Dukicha exhibited a thorough understanding of the needs of his constituents and stood out as a voice of the voiceless.

Before his debut in politics, Hon Dukicha worked with Telcom Kenya between 1992 and 2004.

He has a positive attitude balance and strives for excellence in all his endeavours.
