President Uhuru Kenyatta disbands his communication team
President Uhuru Kenyatta has disbanded his Communication Unit (PSCU) with immediate effect over concerns of unstructured communication and a series of gaffes.
In a memo signed by the deputy Head of Public Service Nzioka Waita, President Kenyatta sent packing four directors who were in charge of various departments in the unit.
The affected directors include: Munyori Buku, who was the Senior Director Public Communications, Dennis Itumbi who was in charge of the Digital and Diaspora Communications Director, Eric Ng’eno, who headed the Messaging docket at the Presidency and James Kinyua, who handled the Branding and Events Directorate in the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit(PSCU).
Citizen TV also learnt that the disbanded team has since been denied access to State House.
However, the Presidency retained Manoah Esipisu as the State House spokesperson and head of communication.
According to a highly placed source, the Presidency was concerned over the increasing cases of unstructured communications that have been sent out in the recent past.
PSCU will, however, according to State House, be reconstituted in the shortest time possible, with emphasis on more organized communication.
