Ms Ambogo - who is the Programmes, Policy and Political Engagements Manager at Mama Ida Odinga's office - walked out of an interview with Citizen TV’s Trevor Ombija after a heated debate.

Ambogo was one of the panelists invited for the Friday November 5, 2021 edition of Day Break for a discussion on the youth.

She accused her fellow speakers Steve Biko and Rebeka Moraa of painting her as a slave serving a master.

This is my last political analysis, you will not hear from me on matters of politics again. For a very long period of time, I Ruth Ambogo have suggested so many policy changes that have been adopted by the government.

There is a narrative being pushed by these very young people sitting right here that I am just but an appointee serving a master. I got to that office by merit. For a long period of time, I have been denied government positions because I did not have a degree,” she explained.

Ruth added: “All the CASs who have been appointed to office are illegally sitting in those offices because most of them were appointed as girlfriends of Cabinet Secretaries, most of them are in clandestine relationships with senior politicians in the country and if you want me to list them I will,” Ms Ambogo added before Trevor stopped her.

She went on to say that she was part of the Daughters of Raila lobby group that pushed for the ODM party leader Raila Odinga's bid for the presidency in 2017.

Trevor interjected as she was giving an update about her law school education at Strathmore University, telling her that she was diverting from the topic.

As the news anchor tried to steer the conversation away from Ambogo, she made a final attempt to put her point across before storming out of the studio as Trevor cut to commercial.

When the show resumed, Ms Ambogo had already left, leaving Steve Biko and Rebeka Moraa to continue with the discussion.
