Kanze Dena is barely one year into her demanding job as State House Spokesperson and she is already in the crosshairs of some politicians and their political games.
The former Citizen TV Swahili journalist has had her competency questioned by Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot.
The Senator who is allied to DP Ruto took his issues with Kanze to Twitter, where he lashed out at her for meddling in Jubilee party affairs.
According to Cheruiyot, Dena is as clueless about Jubilee matters as a nun in a mosque.
“But Kanze Dena has serious competency lapses in her role as State House spokesperson. Somebody advise her to keep off commenting on Jubilee Party issues. Her understanding therein is that of a nun on mosque issues,” the Senator tweeted.
He was responding to Kanze Dena’s statement on Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju’s association with the Opposition.
“The meeting in Rarieda was a government function and Mr Tuju was there in his capacity as the presidential representative,” Dena said during a press briefing on Tuesday.
“It was not a private function but a development event by the government,” she added.
But @KanzeDena has serious competency lapses in her role as @StateHouseKenya spokesperson. Somebody advice her to keep off commenting on @JubileePartyK issues. Her understanding therein is that of a nun on mosque issues.

Funny that everyone who disagrees with the PRIEST OF CORRUPTION is either working for the enemy or incompetent or associated with something negative. Imagine RUTO will NEVER BE PRESIDENT OF KENYA

A drowning man will clutch at a straw to remain afloat. Tangatanga battalion has chosen to blame anyone to remain relevant. From Raila, Murathe, Tuju and now Kanze Dena is the latest. You better accept your situation and move on dont become crybabies.

She is a statehouse spokesperson. Jubilee has been holding its PG meetings at statehouse. There is no clear line between Uhuru in statehouse and Uhuru in jubilee. Kanze Dena speaks for Uhuru

So you know her job description better than the people who employed her and is paying her.
Did you hear them complain about her services.
Ama you as the third party know what she should offer.
Get a life. Pambana na hali yako..
