PSCU personnel have returned to the Ruto State House following recent reforms.

In order to accommodate supporters who had been ejected from State House by the Uhuru Kenyatta government, President William Ruto has increased the size of the presidential media team.

Names like Munyori Buku, David Nzioka, Eric Ngeno, and James Kinyua have returned to the Presidential Communication Service (PCS), formerly known as the Presidential Strategic Communications Unit, as a result of the change (PSCU).

While attorney Eric Ngeno, who oversaw Mr. Kenyatta's messaging at the time, has returned to the same docket and is now the Public Communications Secretary in President Ruto's administration, where he also doubles as a speechwriter for the expansion of PCS, Mr. Buku, who previously served as director of public communications at PSCU, has made a comeback.

Mr. Kinyua, who served as branding and events director until being ousted by the Uhuru administration, has been reinstated while Mr. Nzioka has been named Secretary of Digital and Innovations.

Former journalist and head of communications for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), the ruling party, Mr. Wanjohi Githae, has a new position as director of public relations.

When Dr. Ruto was the nation's number two official, the PSCU directors who were ousted by the Uhuru administration in 2018 were camped out in his Harambee Annex Office.

So far, Dennis Itumbi, who recently revealed that he is presently working for government on a volunteer basis, is the only member of the communications team who has not yet received a state job.
