Citizen TV political editor and reporter Francis Gachuri has announced his exit from the Royal Media Services (RMS) after a 16-year stint.

In a farewell on his colleagues Wednesday March 1, Gachuri revealed he will leave Citizen TV at the end of the week to be the head of communications at the Ministry of Interior. 

“On September 1, 2007, I joined RMS as a political reporter. 5,660 days later, I announce my exit to take up another national assignment. I am grateful and humbled by the many experiences, lessons, and opportunities I have had in the industry,” he said in a meeting.

“I have called this place home, when I came here, I was a young man, who did not even have a family then. All my major milestones have happened while I was here. Now I have two families, my wife and kids and as well as the RMS family that includes my colleagues, our viewers, listeners and readers ” he stated.

Gachuri’s new responsibilities will include developing, delivering, and evaluating communication activities that lead to the Ministry’s effective positioning and promotion of trust.

He will also be in charge of the Ministry of Interior and National Coordination’s internal and external communication channels.
