Contracts of Dennis Itumbi and four other Senior State House PSCU Directors revoked, posts declared redundant by PSC.

Others include; James Kinyua, Erick Ng’eno, David Nzioka and John Ndolo.

The news doesn’t come as a surprise since the group had been rendered baseless. In fact they had been chased away from statehouse and only enjoyed the power trappings from outside the fence.

Time back, following consistent complaints from online and offline users over poor communication strategies, President Uhuru eventually disbanded the Itumbi led team. According to a memo signed by the deputy head of Public service, the directors were shown red card over concerns of unstructured communication and a series of gaffes.

The affected directors included The Senior Director Public Communications, Minyori Buku, Digital and Diaspora Communications Director, Dennis Itumbi, Head of Messaging docket at the Presidency, Eric Ng’eno and James Kinyua, who handled the Branding and Events Directorate in the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit(PSCU).

Veteran journalist Macharia once described the unit as forever snapping at its heels. In a punchline directed at them, Gaitho slammed, “there’s more to communications than insults and big words.” PSCU was known for giving anger field statements primarily oriented towards the opposition. Communications analysts faulted their strategies.
