Government to establish an outreach desk for its communicators

The  government  will  establish an outreach desk to coordinate government communication offices.

The  Government  Spokesman, Col. (Rtd) Cyrus  Oguna  said the desk will create synergy amongst all government communicators  in  a bid to articulate coordinated government policies and programmes that can be relayed effectively to members of the public.

The  Spokesperson said through consistency and effective communication members of the public will be conversant with  the programmes and activities the government is undertaking in their areas and the role they ought to play as stakeholders.

Col. (Rtd) Oguna  told Public Communication Officers and Information Officers at his Telposta offices on Tuesday that  they have an  important role to inform and create awareness amongst members of the public on what the government  is  doing and in particular the Big 4  Agenda.

“We  need to organize our jobs well and give it 100 percent, when you work as a team, keep talking amongst yourselves and are aware of what is happening around you, you will be a jack of all trades and a master of communication,” he added.

Col. (Rtd) Oguna said as government communicators, “I urge you to exploit every single opportunity. There is so much  happening, elevate it to benefit  Wanjiku,” said Oguna and added all communicators should have an eye and nose for news.

The  Spokesperson  encouraged the officers to work as a team, saying that through teamwork and collaboration they  will be  able to come up with new products, and make the outcome of their work more visible and productive.

“As  officers delegated with the duty of disseminating information you should not care about the credit you receive but  the credibility of the information being passed,” he stressed.

Present  at  the  meeting  were  the Information Secretary, Judy  Munyinyi, the  Acting Director of Information, Esther  Wanjau  and  the  Acting Director of Public Communication, Eunice  Muthamia.
