President William Ruto’s daughter Charlene Ruto on Wednesday, December 7 revealed that she sold smokie kachumbari at Daystar University.
While addressing students at the University, the First Daughter further revealed that her father, now Kenya’s head of state, encouraged her to carry on with the business.
“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.
Her remarks got many netizens talking with @Wacera_R asking; “We can’t get a Daystar alumni to confirm this story?”

A commentator, Nick Khaila, sought to understand, “The lie is comically tragic I’ve been in Daystar Valley road with her, she used to come to lectures with a polish very nice BMW & then whiz out after.”
Another online user, Tei Kioko differed alluding, “For some strange reasons, I believe her. I don’t know why these guys are booing at her,”
Charlene who appears to be on a mission to popularise the hustler narrative has been visiting small-scale businesses encouraging youths to take advantage of the Hustler Fund.
On November 19, 2022, Charlene visited a milkshake shop in Kariobangi and enjoyed a milkshake while rooting for the fund.
“Visited a young hustler’s shop in Kariobangi South today and listened to her story on how she saved enough funds to start her own juice & milkshake shop. With instruments like the Hustler Fund, she will expand her business and grow her income,” she remarked.
The President’s daughter has left many wondering about her role in Ruto’s government after crisscrossing the country meeting governors, members of county assemblies, community leaders, students at several schools, and even ministers from other countries.
She had 40 meetings and engagements in and out of Kenya with 31 different high-level events, locally and internationally.
In her continued tours, she has visited five counties and met one governor, three deputy governors and two county Speakers.
