Huddah Monroe Reverses Stance On Supporting President Ruto

Kenyan entrepreneur and influencer Huddah Monroe has made a striking reversal of her long-standing support for President William Ruto.

In a series of Instagram stories, she unapologetically ranked Ruto as the worst president Kenya has ever had, even suggesting that the worst was yet to come.

“Ruto will be the worst president Kenya has ever seen,” she wrote amid uproar over the rising cost of fuel and food items.

“Lesson learnt, never give the son of a poor man the presidential seat.”

She went on to express her concerns about the economic state of Kenya under Ruto’s leadership. “Kenya is going back 30 years… The worst is yet to come,” she noted.

Monroe’s shift in stance is particularly noteworthy given her long-standing support for Ruto. As early as 2017, she had expressed her belief that Ruto would make a commendable president. In 2022, she was at the forefront of congratulating Ruto for his victorious win in the presidential race.

It is unclear what prompted Monroe’s sudden change of heart. However, her comments come at a time when Kenya is facing a number of economic challenges, including rising inflation and unemployment. It is possible that Monroe is simply disillusioned with Ruto’s performance so far.

Whatever the reason for her reversal, Monroe’s comments are likely to resonate with many Kenyans who are struggling to make ends meet. Her words also serve as a reminder that even the most ardent supporters can turn against their leaders if they feel that their needs are not being met.
