As President William Ruto stamps his authority in the running of the country, starting with State House leadership, George Nderitu seems to have survived the purge to maintain his top job at the seat of power.
With a new Presidential Escort Unit Commander in William Oloonkishu Yiampoi, to replace Josephat Kirimi who had served former President Uhuru Kenyatta for almost five years, Ruto is charting his own path.
And with a new Aide-de-camp in Fabian Lengusuranga to replace Brigadier Timothy Stelu Lekolool who had served Uhuru since 2018, Dr Ruto is now officially in-charge.
But GSU G-Company Commanding officer, who is the man in-charge of the presidential protection sub-unit, George Nderitu has stayed put having survived the Ruto overhaul of the members of his inner circle.
In the position for Uhuru's entire second term in office, Nderitu is one man who is very close to power. He has been a key State House operative since the days of the country's third President, Mwai Kibaki where he served as his key bodyguard.
Though thg Ruto broom is still sweeping State House, Nderitu could still survive and continue serving in his position. He has avoided the purge almost four months since the new regime came into being.
