Since his return on April 23, 2019, the president has stayed away from the limelight, which Kenyans feel is unusual of him.

"The President is around, it doesn't mean that because he is not seen in public he is not there, he has an office where he goes every day and he is working on several things," Kanze said.

Kanze apologized for not being as active as she ought to be as the State House’s spokesperson, promising constant communication with the media.
