In May, President Uhuru Kenyatta made several changes in his administration where he appointed 15 senior government officials as Ambassadors and High Commissioners.

"The President has approved the promotion and appointment of 15 serving to the position of Ambassador in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” read a statement from the Foreign Affairs Ministry.

In the appointments, Mubea was appointed Kenyan Ambassador to Ireland.
