How Ruto is disseminating news with website under construction
The State House website has been blank since President William Ruto took office on September 13, keeping Kenyans guessing about the new administration’s plans.
The State House team stated that the website is under construction this week. Therefore, Kenyans must be patient to see how it will look after the construction is concluded.
During the time of the former Head of State Uhuru Kenyatta, the website would be updated within minutes after the main function at the State House or after meeting key leaders in the country and outside.
Also, the website had the Big Four agenda of Mr. Kenyatta, which was visible at the click of it, stating his plans and where his administration had reached in reforming the health sector, Agriculture, housing, and finance as creating employment for Kenyans.
During Mr. Kenyatta’s second term in office, the Big Four plans were launched to transform the country, but the plan did not go far as succession politics toppled it.
According to president Ruto, the 2018 Handshake between his predecessor and the opposition leader Mr. Raila Odinga sabotaged the government’s plan.
All the events of the former president were archived on the website, but with the ongoing changes, it is a matter of waiting and seeing if they will be retrievable after completing the website.
The president has, however, been disseminating the news through alternative means, which is mainly through social media.
President Ruto is active on his Twitter account, and since he took over, the account has been the main route to disseminate any information, as well as the State House Twitter account and Facebook.
Also, his State House press team has been active in ensuring that the events are well shared on social media, at times being streamed live, a team that is being led by the State House Spokesperson in the Executive Office of the President, Hussein Mohamed.
