Kenya's first daughter, Charlene Ruto has broken her silence following the alarming number of female homicide cases that have rocked the nation.
Interestingly, Charlene is the first in her family to speak out against the rampart cases of femicide that saw over 10,000 women (and some men) take to the streets on the 27th of January in Nairobi and other parts of the country such as Mombasa, Nakuru, Lodwar, and Nyeri to protest and call for an end to these senseless murders.
The first family has been mum all along with most faulting President William Ruto and the first lady, Bishop Rachel Ruto for not addressing this national crisis.
It now appears their daughter has taken the initiative to try and salvage their family's name 6 weeks later. Charlene took to her X account to address the national crisis voicing how appalled she was by the reported cases of femicide as she called for an end to the violence.
"As a young woman, I am appalled, shocked, disturbed, and saddened by the regularity of the extreme gender-based violence incidents that have occurred in the recent days," started off President Ruto's daughter.
She went on to add that the fact that some people were not taking this seriously and others were either making light of the situation or victim blaming was very dangerous for the future growth of the country.
"The backward attitude of some members in the society towards this black and white issue is disappointing and dangerous for the future of our younger sisters, daughters, our young women and the population at large,' part of her lengthy post read.
Finishing up she gave all the people in the front lines working to ensure a better future their flowers for taking quick steps to not only address but work on educating people on the happenings as well.
"I appreciate our security forces, advocacy groups and citizens of goodwill for the quick reactions in spotlighting and taking proactive steps to discourage these inexcusable behaviours.
This is my stand...It is non negotiable...#End Femicide KE #End the Violence #For Us #For Our Future Generations," the last of her post read.
