Worst ever! Huddah Monroe denounces President Ruto

September 18th, 2023 2 min read

In a surprising and controversial turn of events, Kenyan entrepreneur and social media influencer Huddah Monroe has made a striking reversal of her long-standing support for President William Ruto.

Her recent declarations on Instagram have raised eyebrows, as she unapologetically ranked Ruto as the worst president Kenya has ever had and expressed grave concerns about the country’s economic state under his leadership.

As Kenya grapples with the rising fuel cost and essential food items, Huddah Monroe took to her Instagram stories to voice her strong opinions on President Ruto’s tenure. In a series of candid posts, she didn’t hold back.

“Ruto will be the worst president Kenya has ever seen,” she wrote, igniting a firestorm of controversy and heated discussions on social media platforms.

But Monroe’s social media outburst didn’t stop there. She said, “Lesson learnt, never give the son of a poor man the presidential seat.”

This statement referenced President Ruto’s humble background and rapid ascent in Kenyan politics.

Perhaps her most dire warning came when she expressed her fears about the nation’s economic trajectory under Ruto’s leadership: “Kenya is going back 30 years… The worst is yet to come,” she ominously noted.

What makes this shift in Monroe’s stance particularly noteworthy is her longstanding and fervent support for Ruto, which dates back to a time when he was not yet president. As early as 2017, she had expressed her belief that Ruto would make a commendable president.

“I’d rather have a Ruto presidency. The man doesn’t play these cat-and-mouse games. We wouldn’t be in this position in a Moi era. Sometimes a dictator is best,” she boldly asserted in a social media post.

Her previous support for Ruto even extended to a criticism of the opposition’s rallying call to the metaphorical ‘Canaan,’ suggesting it might be an unrealistic dream.

“Seems we will be swiped dead by the sea before we cross over to Canaan. I wish the Canaanite’s leader was Abduba Dida. Chances would be high. Lakini no hope,” she added at the time.

In 2022, Monroe was at the forefront of congratulating Ruto for his triumphant win in the presidential race.

Her Instagram stories were flooded with images of the 55-year-old politician, whom she affectionately referred to as “my president.”

She expressed her pride in being Kenyan and celebrated the dawn of what she believed was a new era for Africa:

“I am proud to be a Kenyan from today. Africa deserves strong, sober, young leaders. Kenya has made a change for Africa. I will carry my flag and passport with pride from today. I am from Kenya, the greatest country in Africa!”
