NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) The board of directors from the body that manages Kenya's airports says the group's managing director will be replaced.

The announcement Thursday comes a week after a massive fire gutted the international arrivals hall at Kenya's main airport.

Mutuma Mugambi, the chairman of the Kenya Airports Authority board of directors, said the board is looking for a replacement for Stephen Gichuki, whose contract ends in October.

Nduva Muli, a board member, said Gichuki is not being fired but that his contract is up.

The airport fire brought sharp focus on the security and safety standards at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Firefighters were criticized for a slow response and for not having working equipment.
