President William Ruto took charge of the 60th Madaraka Day festivities in Embu, leading the Kenyan citizens in their commemoration.
Nevertheless, a significant number of Kenyans expressed dissatisfaction with his speech as it failed to address the escalating food prices.
Furthermore, many were dismayed by the president’s tendency to make promises without fulfilling most of his previous campaign pledges. These concerns arose particularly in light of his previous commitment to modernize the boda boda sector by introducing electric motorcycles by September 2023.
Despite failing to address food prices, the head of state expressed his personal struggle with finding solutions to reduce the cost of living, admitting that it keeps him awake at night.
Recognizing the valid concerns raised by Kenyans, Ruto emphasized that addressing the high cost of living is among the highest priorities of his administration.
