Githae transferred from Washington DC to Vienna, Austria

Published

on

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday transferred Kenya’s envoy to Washington DC, Robinson Njeru Githae, to Vienna, Austria, where he will replace embattled former Sports CS, Hassan Wario.

Githae’s post in DC will now be held by Larazus Ombai Amayo, who was in 2018 transferred from London to the UN Mission in New York.

Mr Githae was appointed the ambassador to the United States by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on August 14, 2014, and  presented his credentials to U.S. President Barack Obama on November 18, 2014. It was his first diplomatic posting.

“I have received the communication to that effect from my boss. I have played my part and it is time to go and serve my country elsewhere,” he told Kenya Satellite News Network on Friday evening.

News of his transfer was contained in a statement released by Foreign Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma, which also announced several other changes in diplomatic postings around the world.

In changes affecting several women and elevating career diplomats, the President nominated Michael Mubea, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption, as ambassador to Dublin in Ireland.

Mr Mubea will replace Richard Opembe who will move to the Kenyan mission in Madrid, Spain, which had been headed by Severine Luyali.

Dr Wario, once a Sports Cabinet secretary, is fighting to clear his name in Kenyan courts as he was charged with offences related to misappropriation of funds for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

The changes reflect a proposal that Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma filed in March, to improve implementation of foreign policies.

But they could also represent the desire to change Kenya’s image as most of the replacements have occurred in embassies where Kenyans in the diaspora had consistently complained of poor service.

Long-time philanthropist Mwende Mwinzi will head to Seoul, South Korea. Ms Mwinzi, famed for her Twana Twitu children’s orphanage, lost the race for the Mwingi West parliamentary seat in the 2017 general election.

The President replaced Dr Joseph Sang in Stockholm, Sweden, with Diana Kiambuthi and appointed Ms Jackline Yonga as head of the mission in Rome, Italy.

Harriet Nduma had been serving there in acting capacity.

NEW MISSIONS

The President signalled opening of a diplomatic mission in the Swiss political capital of Bern by nominated Andrew Kihurani.

The decision to open the mission in Bern follows a promise he made when Swiss President Alain Berset visited last July.

Kenya’s former ambassador to Sweden, Purity Muhindi, who had been serving as Director for Africa will head to Dakar in Senegal, one of the new diplomatic missions opened this year.

Dr Juma, who announced the changes in a statement on Friday, congratulated the appointees.

Unlike those transferred, new entrants in diplomatic service as ambassadors will have to be vetted by the National Assembly before they can report.

Also, as is tradition, new entrants will have to be trained on diplomatic courtesies, a process that often takes at least 60 days.

Njambi Kinyungu will head the Kenyan mission to the UN-Habitat in Nairobi, a position last held by Prof Sam Ongeri, who is now Kisii senator.

OTHERS NAMED

The others appointed are:

  1. Kariuki Mugwe – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
  2. Peter Katana Angore – Algiers, Algeria, to replace John Lanyasunya
  3. Barine Eliphas Mugendi – Accra, Ghana
  4. Lamarron ole Kaanto – Berlin, Germany
  5. Purity Muhindi – Dakar, Senegal
  6. John Mwangemi – Djibouti
  7. Mwendwa Musembi – Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  8. Njeri Njiiri Karago – Los Angeles, California, US
  9. Flora Karugu – Lusaka, Zambia, to replace Sophy Kombe

The statement from Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma.

 

PROMOTIONS

Ms Juma also announced that the President had approved the promotion and appointment of 15 serving officers to the position of ambassador in the ministry.

They include George Orina Morara (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia), Joshua Mugodo (Brussels, Belgium), Kennedy Mokaya Gekonde (Kampala, Uganda), Washington Oloo (Doha, Qatar), Lucy Njeri Kiruthu (Geneva, Switzerland), Hellen Adhiambo Gichuhi (Paris, France, Unesco), Stella Mokaya Orina (Vienna), David Kahiro Gacheru (Washington, DC) and Esther Mungai (Berlin).
