President William Ruto has met blogger Cosmas Ombori aka Cosmos Choy in the US.

The controversial blogger shared the photo opportunity with the Head of State on his socials and captioned it: “One on one with the fifth President Ruto”.

The blogger also enjoyed separate photo opportunities with Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and famed journalist Hussein Mohammed, who is currently working as a media and communications guy for President Ruto.

Cosmos Choy appears to have easy access to President Ruto as the two met in the US earlier in the year when the newly sworn in Head of State was on a campaign tour.

Cosmos Choy is a hard-hitting blogger who is not shy to speak his mind.

He backed Raila Odinga in the 2017 polls but changed his mind and supported Ruto’s presidential bid in the run-up to the August 9, 2022 polls.

He is known to release controversial videos targeting former president Uhuru Kenyatta and family.

One such video that targeted president Uhuru Kenyatta’s mother mama Ngina in March of 2022 attracted displeasure from Kenyans on social media forcing him to publicly apologize.

President Ruto is in the US as part of his first international trip.

He had earlier joined other world leaders at the burial of Queen Elizabeth II in London.

In the US, President Ruto who is accompanied by lawmakers Murkomen and Ndindi Nyoro graced and addressed the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

The Head of State has also had meetings with several leaders.
