Semelang'o at Youth Fund

In February 2014, Semelang’o was sacked by President Uhuru Kenyatta from the helm of the Youth Enterprise Fund through a gazette notice. He had served as the Chairman for exactly one year after being appointed by former President Mwai Kibaki in January 2013.

The President did not offer an explanation to Semelang’o's sacking, replacing him with music producer the late Bruce Odhaimbo. Semelang'o was among a group of youthful leaders who supported the re-election of Kibaki in 2007.

In 2013 Semelang'o was among the influential youths who volunteered to shield Kenyatta against ICC accusation.
