Why Kanze Dena should write a book about State House – Lee Njiru

Kanze Dena is the first ever female State House Spokesperson and President’s Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) in the history of Kenya.

She was appointed to the position in October 2018 as part of President Uhuru’s public appointments.

Speaking shortly after the announcement, Ms Dena promised 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,” said Ms Dena before adding that she was ready and prepared for the pressure that comes with the new role.

“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.

Past holders of the office, whose role has grown over the years, include Lee Njiru and Amb. Isaiah Kabira.

Mr Njiru recently launched a tell-all book about his time in service as a press secretary under President Daniel Moi.

Now, he has urged Kanze to also unleash her tell-all under President Kenyatta.

“I call upon others who are here and the heads of the President’s Press Service to also consider writing a book,” Njiru said during the launch of his book in Nakuru.

He noted, “Kanze Dena should write a book and lift a lid on what she has witnessed during President Uhuru’s stay at the State House. The citizens need this information.”
