Four directors of the Presidential Strategic Communications Unit (PSCU) were on Wednesday suspended from office, over what sources said was “conflicting messaging.”
Those affected are Eric Ng’eno, Munyori Buku, Dennis Itumbi and James Kinyua.
“Manoah Esipisu remains in office,” a source in State House said without providing much detail.
The suspensions were contained in a memo from the Office of the Chief of Staff, and followed a series of conflicting communication stretching back several months from the Presidency, according to the source.
At the heart of the latest spat is a story emanating from the New York Times on the International Criminal Court.
The NY Times gave details of lengthy correspondence with State House on the matter, but a statement ostensibly released by some of the PSCU Directors appeared to question the integrity of the NY Times.
