Kisii Governor James Ongwae has announced changes in the county’s communication department aimed at improving services.

In the changes, Mr Ongwae named Mr Isaac Ongiri (pictured) as the new director of communications, replacing Mr Maseme Machuka, who was moved to the department of alcohol and liquor licensing.

Mr Ongiri, a politician and former journalist, is also a former Makueni County director of communications.

Mr Kenan Miruka, who had been holding the post of deputy director, was moved to the department of lands. Mr Ongiri unsuccessfully contested Kasipul Kabondo parliamentary seat in 2017. Governor Ongwae said he reached the decision following the good work Mr Ongiri did while he was at Nation Media Group.

“I have made the changes in a move to ensure better service delivery in my administration,” he said
