| October 31, 2013 | 2 Comments

Uhuru kYou can now SMS or email the the President through the new website:President Uhuru Kenyatta has launched a new website today which now replaces the State House Kenya today. A corruption reporting link forms part of the new website – www.president.go.ke —

The site unveiled online this morning accepts reports via social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Those reporting corruption can also make use of the Short Message Service (SMS) to report graft. The Sms code is 33000.

“The launch of the new look website provides us with an opportunity to leverage ICT tools in restoringIntegrity, Accountability and Transparency,” Communications Secretary and State House Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu said.

“The President is committed to clean government and this site advances his intention to act strongly against corruption,” he said. One can upload video, audio or relevant documents when reporting corruption incidences.

To encourage citizens to report corruption, the form allows anonymous uploads. The site also allows anyone to book an appointment with an office or person working in State House.

The institution of the President will use @StateHouseKenya as its official Twitter and Facebook accounts.

PSCU_Digital will be the main account for government news while @ukenyatta remains a personal account. The Spokesperson’s account remains @MEsipisu.

The Launch also marked the official entry of the First Lady into Social Media. Her Official accounts are Facebook Office of the First Lady and @OFL_KE on twitter.

PSCU Digital will soon unveil a draft Social Media policy for the Public Service aimed at standardizing communications across Internet platforms.

“The idea is to create Internet and social media institutions across Government. We will create institutional brands as opposed to personal channels, so that Presidents and officials who come years after our departure will not be required to create new channels,” Dennis Itumbi, The Director Digital, New Media and Diaspora said.

“The digital team will relentlessly modernize State House and transform Government services through innovation and New Media,” Itumbi added.

President Kenyatta promised to launch a site where Kenyans can report corruption while launching the 30% procurement opportunities in Government two weeks ago.

“Very soon I will launch a website where you can report corruption directly to me, I will start that website very soon,” pledged President Kenyatta.
