President William Ruto has a new Aide-De-Camp, Colonel Fabian Lengusuranga from the Kenya Army.

He is taking over from Brigadier Stelu Lekolool who has been promoted to the Department of Defence HeadQuarters.

Data from the Kenya Army indicate that Colonel Lengusuranga was commissioned in 1999.

He is also a seasoned military officer having served as a senior Special Forces branch commander.

The new ADC is deputized by Lt. Col. Damaris Agnetta also from the Kenya Army.

She is taking over from Racheal Nduta Kamui who has also been promoted to the Department of Defence headquarters.

Lengusuranga and his deputy have been tasked with escorting President Ruto to state events among other responsibilities.

The two will also be part of the team that will be giving the commander-in-chief security briefs before and after state functions.

Today, Lengusuranga accompanied President Ruto to Nyeri, where he is attending the funeral of Reriani Gachagua brother to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

According to the Defence Council, the change is effected from time to time because of the career progression of officers.

The selection of Aide-de-Camps is normally done after consultation with the National Defence Council.

The council says the period in which the ADC will serve will depend on several issues, including age, but most of them serve in that capacity for three years.

The President is also granted an opportunity to pick his Aide De Camp, who works closely with the Presidential Escort Unit Commander who is in charge of his security.
