Kisumu “dancing” chief lands new role in government

John Ogilo Migun, the dancing chief from Kisumu has landed a new role in the government.

Migun, 38, is the Northern Sub Location assistant chief in Kisumu Central Sub-County.

He has been picked to market the Huduma Kenya services besides his role as an administrator.

In the video which was shot at the entrance of Kisumu City’s Prosperity Building, Mr Migun is seen sensitising the youth on the government services provided at the Huduma Centre.

Mr Migun, dressed in a Huduma Center-branded white shirt appeals to the public to take advantage of the extended working hours to get the services they need from the centre.

“Sasa watu nguyaz, mabazuu na mayutman, services sasa ni saa moja asubuhi hadi saa moja jioni. Unatoka job, colle, ama works zako zingine unaingia Huduma center, na baada ya hiyo saa majo unaenda kutulia (Greetings my people and the youth, you can now access services here from 7 am until 7 pm. You can leave your workplace, college or any other engagements and you come directly to our Huduma centres, and after that, you go and chill,” said Mr Migun.

At the end of the video, he does his signature dancing moves alongside other eight Huduma Centre staff.

The Nation reports that Kisumu County Commissioner Josephine Ouko and the chief could not confirm the appointment.

According to the publication, however, they said they were waiting for communication from the Office of the President.

Recently, the government extended the working hours from 5 pm to 7 pm fulfilling a promise by Public Service and Gender Cabinet Secretary Aisha Jumwa on November 1 last year.

Ms Jumwa had stated that all the 18 Huduma centres countrywide would start operating for 12 hours a day during weekdays.

Mr Migun sprang into the limelight after he was filmed at a popular nightclub in Kisumu while dancing to the hit song Kuna Kuna, a collaboration of many Kenyan artists including Vic West, Fathermoh, Brandy Maina, Savara Mudigi and Thee Exit Band.

Christened the ‘Mindoko chief’ by the public, the administrator has remained the talk of the town owing to his graceful and well-choreographed dancing styles at Alleyways Beer Garden Club in Kisumu in December.

He promised to reach out to youth to curb drug abuse and alcoholism.

The administrator says the video has made him more popular in Kisumu.

He stated that many people can now open up and share with him critical information in the community.

“Being a chief has improved my discipline, I even had to shave my beard,” says the administrator.
