Mixed Reactions as Kanze Dena Makes Maiden State House Briefing

June 21, 2018

Kenyans on Wednesday finally got to see Kanze Dena in action following her highly publicised and celebrated appointment as deputy State House spokesperson.

The former Citizen TV Swahili news anchor stepped out clad in an official navy blue trouser suit as she marked her name in Kenyan history books as the first female State House Deputy Spokesperson.

Backed by her years of experience in broadcast journalism, Kanze held her nerve on her new podium and introduced the brief in Swahili.

She addressed the Sh3.0 trillion 2018/2019 budget presented last week saying it is not oppressive to the ordinary citizens. She said the budget is pro-poor and aims at helping the government achieve its plans on the big four agenda.

In regards to the war on corruption, Kanze Dena maintained that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s is dedicated to ensuring the vice is eliminated.

She said all constitutional agencies mandated to fight corruption have been directed to move swiftly and ensure all culprits are brought to book.

“The president is a front liner to the war against graft. As he directed a lifestyle audit of all public servants it remains just like that until the vice is eliminated,” she said.

Kenyans who were following the briefing took to social media platforms to comment on Kanze’s maiden address. While a majority were impressed, another section chose to shoot the messenger.
