Maina, who was the board's 345th meeting chair, said they have now appointed Dr Daniel Manduku as the new MD in two months acting capacity.
"The board observed that the above situation can only be explained by lack of effective leadership," said Maina.
Transport PS Prof. Paul Maringa said the new MD is expected to resolve the challenge within two months.
"Over the last seven days, we had over 22,000 containers at the yard. The MD could not explain this congestion," Maringa said.
