In a statement shared by the State House Spokesperson Hussein Mohammed, the President will engage the youths on the issues raised.

The X Space will take place from 2 pm to 5 pm.

"Engage President William Ruto tomorrow," the State House spokesperson said. 


X has a a platform known as Space where live audio conversations take place.

The Gen Zs have recently voiced their dissatisfaction with the Finance Bill and the current regime demanding accountability.

The Bill was criticised for its potential economic impact forcing the President to withdraw it after a wave of protests.

During a media roundtable at State House on June 30, the President agreed to Gen Z's demand that the only environment they would be comfortable discussing their issues was Space on X.

"I promised that I would engage the young people through multi-sectoral forums. I also promised the topics that I wanted us to discuss, and I’m open. I have heard that they do not want a multi-sectoral forum, and maybe we should engage on X, and I'm open to talking with them on a forum they are comfortable with," Ruto said.

On June 22, President William Ruto briefly joined an X space which was discussing matters about his administration.

The X space was dubbed " Good Morning Kenya: Where is Crazy Nairobian".

The President joined shortly before exiting the space, eliciting reactions from Kenyans.

State House spokesperson, Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen among other leaders also joined the space.

A section of X influencers have been holding spaces to discuss, update and enlighten each other.
