President Ruto’s daughter Charlene Ruto has once again been the topic of discussions across social media platforms after she revealed that she runs the office of the first daughter.
Speaking on Tuesday, December 13, during a Youth Lead Summit in Arusha, Tanzania, Charlene said she has an office of the first daughter which she uses to run her activities as the daughter of the president.
President Ruto’s second eldest daughter went ahead and introduced the staff at her office.
“So before again I continue, I wanted to introduce quickly my team from Kenya. So, I’ll start from the back,” she said.
Among those, she says works at the office of the first daughter include Mike Sagana and Jermaine Momanyi.
Charlene said that apart from being a politician, Sagana is her principal advisor while Momanyi is the head of Trade and Investment at her office.
“This is Mike Sagana, he’s one of my team members. He’s a politician and he’s my principal advisor on my team. And this is Jermaine Momanyi, he is the head of trade and investments at the office of the first daughter…” she said amid laughter from the audience.
It was at this point that the audience could be heard going into disbelief, then clapping before a section of them began laughing.
“…I don’t get what’s funny,” Charlene said in reaction to the audience laughing.
Kivumbi.co.ke understands that the Kenyan Constitution 2020 does not recognize the office of the first daughter.
President William Ruto’s daughter Charlene Ruto has received a backlash from Kenyans and allies of opposition leader Raila Odinga.
“For the first time since God made Kenya, we have the office of the first daughter…okay. Is there anything we don’t know?” asked Philip Etale.
