Foreign Affairs Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Ababu Namwamba has been appointed as the Head of International Relations at William Ruto Presidential Campaign Secretariat.

In a statement on Wednesday through the secretariat's Head of Communications Hussein Mohammed, DP Ruto said Namwamba is fit for the role having served as a leader, a lawyer and a politician.

“We have worked closely with Ababu over the past 10 years on many fronts and I have come to value his leadership, experience, and empathy.

“It is because of those qualities that I could not be more grateful to have him on our campaign team,” Ruto said.

The DP lauded Namwamba for his international relations skills, saying he will be useful to his presidential bid.

"With his considerable diplomatic talents, deep knowledge of the continent, strong network in the global stage, and unwavering determination, I am confident in his role," Ruto added.

He also praised the former Budalangi MP as an excellent lawyer whose career in the legal profession will be useful to his campaign secretariat.

"He has previously been active on the international lobbying circuit, strongly, advocating for international human rights and fair trade practices," he said.

Ababu hosted Ruto at his Budalangi home last month where he had staged a football match.

He has also announced that he will not vie for any political seat in the upcoming general election.
