Kiwomya gained his first victory as the Magpies' manager against Bury on Friday night, coming from behind to win 4-1. This followed a defeat and two draws.
Kiwomya was initially appointed on a caretaker basis to replace the sacked Keith Curle on 3rd February, but has now been confirmed until the end of the season.
"Chris has shown his desire and enthusiasm for the job and coupled this with a tactical astuteness that has allowed him to turn things around when they haven't been going exactly as we would have liked," Notts County Chairman Ray Trew told the club's official website.
"We think Chris deserves the chance to build on the work that he has done in the short space of time that he has been in charge of first team affairs and we are happy to confirm that he will be at the helm until the end of the current campaign.
"We will, of course, review the situation at the end of the season, but Chris now has the chance to show us exactly what he can do, in the knowledge that he has an extended spell in charge."
Kiwomya's first game in a non-caretaker role will be on Tuesday night, when County travel to Tranmere Rovers.
