Earlier, we reported that Joe Mucheru has been nominated as Kenya’s new Cabinet Secretary for ICT. Joe Mucheru is the Sub-Saharan Africa ambassador and Country Manager of Google. To add to that, he serves as a current board member of UAP Investments and BitPesa.

Reactions from Kenyans on Twitter have started pouring in and we have gathered some of them. Here they are.

“It’s a thoughtful appointment.”

Donald believes it’s one of “the best possible appointments from the private sector perspective.” Hopefully, he’ll visit the iHub more often.

But they will. He’s got endorsements from influential people.

Joe Mucheru’s appointment is subject to vetting and approval of all nominated Cabinet Secretaries by the Kenyan Parliament.
