Eliud Owalo, FIHRM

Eliud Owalo,

Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Information, Communications & the Digital Economy, Republic of Kenya

Thank you for visiting my website.  I am a humble son of Kenya. I am keen to work with like-minded Kenyans for a better country. In spite of all the challenges our country faces, I am proudly Kenyan. I am honored and privileged to serve the people of Kenya as a Cabinet Secretary, under the leadership of His Excellency Dr. William Samoei Ruto, PhD, CGH, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Forces of the Republic of Kenya.

Over the years, I have served worthy causes. I have partnered with local communities in socio-economic activities as agents of real change. I have been involved with people-centered political, social and economic causes. My ultimate objective is a better, fairer, equitable and all-inclusive society. I first came to Nairobi after finishing High School. I lived in the sprawling slums of Kibra. Here, I got first-hand experience of the reality in which those at the bottom of the social and economic ladder in our society live.  I had a taste of the plight and challenges that a majority at this level face. I have since held zealously to the vision of making life more bearable for those at the bottom.

The people of Kibra, and the country as a whole, have known me as a strong defender and advocate of basic human rights, the rule of law, widened democratic space and positive change. Service is my passion. It is my joy to welcome you to my website.  Please interact with me and give feedback on your experience on this site.
