Kenyan entrepreneur and influencer Huddah Monroe has made a striking reversal of her long-standing support for President William Ruto.

In a series of Insta stories, she unapologetically ranked Ruto as the worst president Kenya has ever had, even suggesting that the worst was yet to come.

"Ruto will be the worst president Kenya has ever seen," she wrote amid uproar over the rising cost of fuel and food items.

Her social media outburst continued as she added:

"Lesson learnt, never give the son of a poor man the presidential seat."

She went on to express her concerns about the economic state of Kenya under Ruto's leadership.

"Kenya is going back 30 years... The worst is yet to come," she noted.

Monroe ardent supporter of Ruto

What makes this shift in Huddah Monroe's stance particularly noteworthy is her long-standing support for Ruto which dates back to when he was not 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 asserted.

Her previous support for Ruto extended to a criticism of the opposition's rallying call to the metaphorical 'Canaan,' suggesting it might be a pipe 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.

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

She flooded her Instagram stories with several images of the 55-year-old politician, captioning them with "my president."

She expressed her pride in being Kenyan adding:

"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!"
