Social media influencer and long time Jubilee party blogger Pauline Njoroge has become the latest casualty of President William Ruto’s purge on his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta’s allies in government.
The sassy blogger who is known to take no prisoners on her social media pages has been axed from the Tourism Regulatory Authority.
Tourism Cabinet Secretary Peninah Malonza has in a gazette notice this morning sent Pauline Njoroge packing. Also sent home are Kevin Muasya, Najma Ismail, Alais Momoi and Isaac Muchiri.
Pauline Njoroge was hired to the board in the year 2020 by former Tourism CS Najib Balala. In August of the same year, Balala announced that she had fired Pauline due to a Facebook post she had made about Nairobi National Park.

“I am revoking Pauline Njoroge’s appointment as a board member because we have just seen what she had tweeted in the past that Nairobi National Park was useless,” Balala is quoted in a press release by the ministry.
“We don’t want to be associated with such people and such thinking,” the CS said citing the integrity of the Nairobi National Park and the government’s commitment to conserve it.
“The integrity of Nairobi National Park is very important and the government is committed to save Nairobi National Park and any other protected area which is the habitat for our national heritage,” he added.
