In a stern appeal to Generation Z, First Daughter Charlene Ruto has called on young Kenyans to support the National Multi-Sectoral Forum (NMSF), a key initiative spearheaded by her father, President William Ruto.

Addressing recent violent demonstrations against the Finance Bill, Charlene expressed concern over the influence of malicious forces seeking to disrupt national peace.

She emphasised the importance of young people standing united against such divisive elements.

"The recent anti-Finance Bill demonstrations, which turned violent, were infiltrated by dark forces out to cause chaos in the country," she noted.

Charlene's plea is grounded in her personal experiences as a young Kenyan, not merely as the president's daughter.

"We have used our voices and platforms to be a part of current affairs. I say 'we' because I stand before you today, not just as the President's daughter but as one of you. A young Kenyan passionate about our country's future," she affirmed.

She assured young people that she shares their concerns and experiences the same economic pressures.

"I hear your voices and understand your concerns. The challenges we face as a generation are real and pressing; from unemployment to the rising cost of living, we are all feeling the impact of our current economic situation," she stated.

Charlene urged young Kenyans to resist manipulation by selfish politicians who might exploit their frustrations for personal gain.

"We will not allow anyone to use our name to misalign us and to put us away from the support that we need," she added.

Charlene Ruto's speech was delivered in Nairobi, following a meeting with 47 presidents of county student associations.

These associations represent a broad spectrum of the country's youth, and Charlene has been collaborating with them for nearly two years.
