Political analyst Prof. Mutahi Ngunyi is among individuals awarded State commendations by President Uhuru Kenyatta in a gazzette notice dated July 8. Several other big names, from governance to the judiciary, academia, military, media, sports and entertainment, also feature on the list.

Ngunyi, a fierce critic of Deputy President William Ruto, was awarded with the Elder of the Order of the Burning Spear (E.B.S.). With less than a month left to the August General Elections, it is among Uhuru’s last actions as the President exits the stage after two terms.

The commendations include Order of the Golden Heart, Order of the Grand Warrior (O.G.W.) and Order of the Burning Spear (C.B.S.)

Other figures who received various honours include Supreme Court Judge Justice Isaac Lenaola, State House spokesperson Kanze Dena, former Harambee stars coach David Kimanzi, RnB singer Karun and Nation journalist John Kamau.

More notable individuals include Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu, Kenyatta International Conventional Centre (KICC) Managing Director Nana Gecaga, Media Council of Kenya (MCK) boss David Omwoyo, M-Pesa Africa Managing Director Sitoyo Lopokoiyit and newly appointed MTN Uganda CEO Sylvia Mulinge.

Uhuru’s Personal assistant Jomo Gecaga also received a commendation.
