In a new Executive Order, President William Ruto has given State House Spokesperson Hussein Mohammed a full-fledged office.

The new arrangement means that the Office of the President will now have an official Executive Office of the State House Spokesperson.

The former director of communications in the presidential campaign team will now answer directly to the head of state.

According to a source, the Executive Order eliminates the bureaucracy that would often surround a position this sensitive and public.

“The Order removes the long processes and streamlines communication in the high office. We expect a seamless flow of information and less bureaucracy because of fewer and clear reporting lines,” said the source.

According to the Executive Order, the State House Spokesperson will be the accounting officer and will be leading a team of communicators, researchers, and think tanks, and interface with other arms of government including the Executive and Legislature as he strives to articulate President Ruto’s agenda.

Mohammed, a broadcast journalist, was tapped by the President to head his presidential campaign before he transitioned to State House Spokesperson.

Earlier, Ruto, through Executive Order 1 of 2023 reorganized his government. Among the key changes was making Deputy Rigathi in charge of the coffee sector reforms in the country.

Other changes include the transfer of the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) from the Ministry of Interior to the Ministry of Transport.
