DP Ruto officially welcomed Hussein to his camp after a meeting with him at his official Karen residence.

"Hussein Mohammed, a renowned TV journalist, has been appointed Head of Communications in the William Ruto Presidential Campaign. Welcome to the Hustler team," DP said.

After exiting citizen TV, Hussein has been working as a communications consultant with NGOs.

While announcing his exit from the Royal Media Service, the veteran journalist said he will be engaging in private activities.
