Iam currently the Director of Communications at the County Government of Elgeyo Marakwet which is a pioneer sub national with the OGP. I currently serve as a steering committee member working on OGP commitments for my County Government. Before I joined the County Government, I served as a Reporter and later Editor with the Standard Media Group, one of the leading media houses in Kenya. I hold a Degree in Communication and Public Relations and a Diploma in Journalism. My life's goals can be summed up thus; to impact my world in whatever way,big or small. I would rather do something to change my world than do nothing. My interests revolve around community development and this motivated my decision to become a journalist where I focused more on development journalism. My current work at the County Government continues on this path but now focuses more on building literacy among the populace on government operations to enable them participate more in their governance. Working with Reboot on OGP principles and generating commitments for our County Government has been a great experience and I look forward to actively play my role in finally implementing the commitments.
