President William Ruto has been named one of Time magazine’s top 100 influential people in the world, alongside fellow Kenyan Kennedy Odede, a philanthropist and the founder of Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO).

Time magazine highlighted Ruto’s role as a key advocate for Africa’s climate ambitions, noting his increasing prominence on the global stage. They mentioned Kenya’s successful hosting of the Africa Climate Summit in Nairobi, where Ruto’s call for lenders to ease debt burdens faced by some African countries garnered attention and support for climate solutions.
