She replied simply that the question should be directed to the president and not to her.

"If you have questions for the president, you will ask him his questions," Charlene said.

Despite the incident, Charlene answered other questions regarding her life and how it has changed since becoming the daughter of the president.

When asked if she maintains contact with her former friends, she responded thoughtfully.

President William Ruto on Wednesday, January 4, 2023, defended his daughter Charlene Ruto after her statement saying there was an office of the first daughter.

In a joint media interview at State House, the president said the remarks by his daughter were out of excitement, noting that there was no provision in the Constitution for the office Charlene mentioned.

“Leave my daughter Charlene alone, these are kids. They are just being children. You know very well that there is no office called the Office of the First Daughter.

“This is a girl who is being a child, you know? She has this space, and maybe her colleagues are pushing her… telling her ‘maybe we could do this’, but you know, she is… she is okay,” the president said.

Charlene Ruto came under sharp criticism after a video of her in Arusha, Tanzania emerged where she was introducing the team accompanying her describing it as the team from the office of the first daughter.

She later issued a statement clarifying that the office of the first daughter was not a public office nor is it funded by taxpayers.
