Kenyans online are expressing disbelief over the apparent existence of an office of the first daughter, linked to President William Ruto’s second-born daughter.
In a video being shared widely online, Charlene Ruto is seen speaking to an audience at a summit in Tanzania where she introduces her “team from Kenya” including her adviser and another who is the “head of trade and investments at the office of the first daughter”.
Kenyan law does not provide for an office of the first daughter and there has not been any public announcement of the introduction of such an office.
Kenyans online have been criticizing what some see as a misuse of taxpayers’ money.
In a statement, Ms Ruto says the office is not a government department but is a “private entity”. END
