President Uhuru Kenyatta is today set to meet elected leaders in Nyeri ahead of a major meeting with leaders from the region on Saturday, his aides announced on Friday.
Uhuru is scheduled to meet County Assembly members and Members of Parliament to reach common ground before the main meeting at the Sagana State Lodge.
While addressing a press conference, State House Spokeswoman Kanze Dena outlined the president’s itinerary but did not provide details on exactly who is expected to attend the Sagana meeting.
Even amidst the rising political temperatures in the mountain region, it was Dena’s transformation that stole the show at Sagana State Lodge, leaving the ever-keen netizens unable to ignore her changed looks since she got the plum government job.
Kanze, who was previously a news anchor that specialized in current affairs, political interviews and entertainment, resigned from Citizen TV in June 2018 after her appointed as the Deputy State House Spokesperson and Deputy Head, PSCU, a role she held for a six weeks before ascending to her current role of Spokesperson.
Below is a statement from Kanze Sena
