President Uhuru Sacks Eric Kiraithe



ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru has issued a statement dated May 7, 2019 saying that Retired Colonel (Rtd) Cyrus Oguna replaces Eric Kiraithe as governments Spokesperson with immediate effect.

The directive reads and I quote; “In line with directions from the Executive office of the President through the Head of Public Service, the office of the Government Spokesman shall be domiciled at the Ministry of Information, Communication and Technology,”

“He will also have content oversight role over the two government news gathering and dissemination channels; Kenya News Agency and MyGov,” the directive adds.

Rtd. Col. Oguna was formerly the spokesman for the Kenya Defence Forces. He became popular and attracted so many public limelights with his tough talk when the KDF entered Somalia in 2011.

He was the senior most spokesman in the former ‘Operation Linda Nchi.’  Oguna faded from the limelight immediately when KDF and the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) joined forces.
