Vice President William Ruto has appointed former Citizen TV presenter Hussein Mohamed as communications manager for his presidential campaigns.

Ruto took to his official Twitter account on Monday to announce that the former presenter had joined the Hustler Nation movement.

“A well-known television journalist has been appointed communications officer for William Ruto’s presidential campaign. Welcome to Team Hustler,” DP Ruto wrote on his Twitter.

The appointment comes a day after Ruto pocketed ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula ahead of August 9 elections.

Hussein quit television in October 2019 after a stellar career spanning almost 10 years to focus on “other matters”.

“It has been 10 wonderful years at Citizen TV. I enjoyed and savored every moment I shared with my colleagues at RMS,” he announced on Twitter.

Prior to his resignation, Mohamed hosted News Night, where he mainly interviewed politicians in prime time every Tuesday.

Prior to that, he hosted The Big Question alongside former Citizen TV news anchor Janet Mbugua.

Hussein interviewed President Uhuru Kenyatta, Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga among other prominent political figures in the country.

Motor vehicle tracking and monitoring is not new to Kenyans. The competition to install affordable tracking devices is fierce but essential for fleet managers who receive reports online and track vehicles from the comfort of their office.
