The presentation of the second annual Kenya Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) took place virtually on Thursday 26th August 2021 as part of an internationally attended online Thought Leadership Webinar – “Thinking about outstanding security in Kenya: what are the barriers to making further improvements?” organised in collaboration with Securexpo East Africa.

OSPA winners were selected by an esteemed panel of industry figures who judged entries using the same criteria which is applied to OSPAs around the world.  Each winner demonstrated that they have performed at an exceptional level and has shown their commitment and outstanding performance within the security sector.

The winners of the 2021 Kenya OSPAs are:

Outstanding Security Manager or Director
Annette Kimitei – Senaca East Africa

Outstanding Security Training Initiative
Private Security Training Academy (PSTA)

Outstanding Contract Security Guarding Company
