What statehouse is accomplishing to Dennis Itumbi is very regrettable. I can visualize what the male who gave his all and revolutionized the use of social media and on-line propaganda in political strategies, in Kenya, in 2013, is heading by way of. I unquestionably wouldn’t would like to be in his sneakers at this stage in time.
Just this afternoon, statehouse Main of Team & Head of Shipping Nzioka Waita, issued a strongly worded assertion in which he reported:
“State Dwelling has carried out a review of the numerous electronic media accounts that have in the previous been used to convey official information and facts on the routines of H.E the President, Uhuru Kenyatta.
“In this regard and with speedy outcome the only official digital media channels that will express information and facts for and on behalf of the President, Her Excellency the Very first Woman and Condition House are as in depth underneath:
1. Point out Residence Kenya
2. Uhuru Kenyatta
3. @Office environment of the Initially Woman Kenya”
“Please notice that all official conversation originating from the President’s Strategic Communications Unit shall be strictly communicated via the aforementioned channels.”
For keen observers, you will be aware that the twitter cope with @presidentKE, “President of Kenya” fb web page and twitter handle for Presidential Strategic Conversation Device, PSCU, and fb webpage for the device that had been below the grip command of Itumbi have been remaining out.
In its place, the only twitter handles and facebook accounts that will be applied to relay official information and facts by statehouse are all those of Uhuru Kenyatta, Initially Girl, statehouse and Kanze Dena.
Really don’t neglect that Itumbi is the 1 dude who formed statehouse digital communication that was on its deathbed all through Kibaki reign.
When Uhuru reshuffled his cabinet some days back, Manoah Esipisu, head of PSCU, was appointed ambassador to United kingdom. There was no point out of Itumbi nor other PSCU minions.
As we converse Itumbi has been dumped like trash at Harambee Annex, the DP’s office. A few months in the past when DP had an job interview with NTV, a image was circulating on the social media of Itumbi and DP’s subordinate staffs rolling the pink carpet.
Itumbi’s predicament need to be a lesson to all who get the job done for politicians. He and the PSCU imbeciles had been useful as long as they had been insulting Raila Odinga.
Then “Handshake” occurs.
