Former county communication director in Meru county Mr.Simon Kobia who worked during the regime of the former governor Peter Munya is now the new communication director in TharakaNithi county.
Mr.Kobia once worked with Royal Media Services (RMS) as a Meru based correspondent before veering off into county communication jobs. He studied a journalism course at the Kenya Institute of mass communication and also studied at Nazarene University.
He will now be taking over from Ms.Fedice Ngo’ora who has since tendered her resignation from the slot in unclear circumstances. Ms.Fedice had taken over the communication job from Jonah Gaicima who also surrendered the post to work in a local fm station based in Nairobi.
The new communication director takes over the job when the county is in ups and down from corruption allegations with the county boss alongside other county officials facing arrests over graft.
