PETALING JAYA: Kelantan PPBM chairman Kamarudin Md Noor has been appointed the new chairman of the Kemubu Agricultural Development Authority.
His appointment, from May 16, is for a two-year term.
He replaces Husam Musa, chairman of Kelantan Pakatan Harapan, who was appointed on March 1 last year by the PH federal government.
