Hussein promoted Mohamed while Ruto organizes the government


State House spokesman Hussein Mohamed was promoted on Monday, January 9, during the latest reorganization of President William Ruto’s government.

Sources aware of the matter have suggested that Mohamed’s office was separate from that of the presidential press director and will now operate independently.

The former director of communications on the presidential campaign team will now answer directly to the head of state.

Hussein’s office was initially assigned to the Presidential Communication Secretary (PCS), where he served as David Mugonyi’s deputy.

“The Order removes the long processes and streamlines communication in the high office. We expect a seamless flow of information and less bureaucracy due to fewer and clear reporting lines, an insider revealed.

The two were commissioned by order in October 2022 following the dissolution of the Presidential Service Communication Unit (PSCU).

In other changes, Ruto appointed David Nzioka as Secretary of State for Digital and Innovations. Itumbi, who held a position in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government, also revealed.
