Kenya: Former State House Comptroller Nelson Githinji is now the new Director General of the National Youth Service (NYS). Dr Githinji replaces Kiplimo Rugut.

Mr Rugut has been moved to the ministry of Sports headquarters to await redeployment after serving for one year at the helm of NYS.

Yesterday, signs that Githinji is the new boss at the Ruaraka-based training base were clear, as he was in hand to receive Chinese Premier Li Keqiang who visited the NYS headquarters.

Premier Li was accompanied by Deputy President William Ruto. Rugut was absent from the function.

Rugut, a long serving provincial administrator was promoted as NYS boss in April last year from the former Central Province where he served as PC. He was among the administrators who were close to retired President Mwai Kibaki.

Planning and Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru appointed Githinji, but refused to divulge reasons for Rugut’s removal only saying; “It is a normal exercise to reshuffle officers within Government.”

“Yes, he (Githinji) is the new director general at NYS,” Ms Waiguru said when asked about Githinji.

She did not confirm Rugut’s next destination only saying: “I don’t know. Officers get moved in Government.”

Waiguru and her PS Peter Mangiti took the Chinese Premier on a tour of the institution.
