First daughter Charlene Ruto has broken her silence over the Finance Bill.

The embattled Charlene who has been criticised for her silence on the controversial Bill also defended her father,  President William Ruto.

In a statement on her social media platforms, Charlene gave her support to the Finance Bill by saying her father had the country’s best interest at heart.

She commended the youthful protesters for exercising their constitutional right to picket but urged them to do it respectably if they want to be heard.

“I stand in a very unique position regarding the issues facing my country Kenya as we speak. As a president’s daughter, I have no doubt in my mind, watching my father rise in politics for over 30 years, seeing his work and passion behind the scenes, that he truthfully holds the best interests of Kenyans at heart,”

“As a youth champion, I hear the cry of this generation and give my kudos that we not only care about current affairs but have a stand and are willing to raise our concerns. This is a game-changer. Let’s do it consistently, in an informed manner, with respect and honour. That is how we will be heard.” She said.

In 2022, Charlene claimed she made money selling smokie kachumbari while she was a student at Daystar University.

The first daughter made the remarks at the institution where she was addressing the students.

She said her father pushed her to give her best in the small business she was doing.

“I used to have a business selling smokie Kachumbari while on campus at Daystar University, that was the profitable business then, my father encouraged me in that small business I was doing,” she recalled.
