President Uhuru Kenyatta has confirmed Ms Kellen Kanze Dena, to the position of State House Spokesperson and Head of the President’s Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU).

Ms Dena, who has been acting in the same position for the last 3 months, takes over from Mr Manoah Esipisu who was appointed Kenya’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom in July this year.

“We wish Ms. Dena success in her new role and ask all stakeholders including PSCU staff, the media and colleagues in Government to accord her the support she needs to excel,” the statement reads.

Before her elevation to the helm of the President’s communication team, Ms Dena was the acting Spokesperson, a role she assumed over 3 months ago.

In June this year, Ms Dena was appointed to a newly created position of Deputy State House Spokesperson and Deputy Head of PSCU.

 

Ms Dena assured her team and the nation that she intends to build on the successes of her predecessor by repositioning PSCU to deliver on its mandate.

“I will work with my team and all stakeholders across Government to ensure that we deliver on our mandate as the President’s media team,”Ms Dena said.

She affirmed that whatever challenges come her way, she will overcome with God by her side.

“I am well aware of the demands of the job and confirm my preparedness to step into the shoes of my predecessor. I trust that with God and with the support of my superiors and the cooperation of my team, we will be able to succeed,” Ms Dena added.

Previously called the President’s Press Service, PSCU is primarily charged with the responsibility of packaging and delivery of the President’s communication using multiple established media platforms and outlets.

Past holders of the office, whose role has grown over the years, include Lee Njiru and Amb. Isaiah Kabira, who is now serving as Kenya’s High Commissioner to Australia.

In recent months, PSCU has undergone a re-engineering process that has seen a review of the unit’s operations and strategic focus as well as the recruitment and deployment of fresh talent mostly from private sector and other government formations.

Kanze becomes the first female State House Spokesperson and Head of PSCU in the history of Kenya.

Her elevation is in line with President Kenyatta’s recent public appointments in which the Head of State has appointed high achieving women to key positions in his government.

Among them are Rachel Nduta Kamui, the first ever woman Aide-de-Camp, a Lt. Col. of the Kenya Airforce.
