President Ruto to Speak to Kenyans through X Space This Friday

President William Ruto has officially announced the timing for his highly anticipated address on X Space, where he will tackle pressing national issues including ongoing protests, corruption, debt, and the escalating cost of living.

The announcement comes as Kenya grapples with widespread unrest and public outcry that initially sparked from the “Reject Finance Bill 2024” movement and has now evolved into the “Ruto Must Go” protests.

The decision to speak directly to the public via X Space signifies a significant step by President Ruto to address the concerns and grievances voiced by many Kenyans. The country has witnessed intense demonstrations, and tragically, lives have been lost due to police brutality. Among the casualties is a 12-year-old child, whose death has further fueled public anger and calls for justice.

President Ruto’s address is scheduled to take place between 2 PM and 5 PM, and it is anticipated to attract a large audience eager to hear the President’s response to the growing crisis.

### Background on the Protests

The protests against the Finance Bill 2024 began as a peaceful demonstration but quickly escalated as the public expressed their frustration over a range of issues. Corruption scandals have plagued the government, eroding public trust, while the national debt continues to soar, putting additional strain on the economy. Furthermore, the cost of living has risen sharply, affecting millions of Kenyans who are struggling to make ends meet.

The situation reached a boiling point with the tragic shooting of a 12-year-old child by police during a protest, a stark reminder of the excessive force often used against demonstrators. This incident has been a rallying cry for many, bringing attention to the need for police reform and accountability.

### Looking Ahead

As the nation awaits President Ruto’s address, there is a palpable sense of urgency for meaningful change. The upcoming speech on X Space is seen as a critical moment for the President to connect with the public, acknowledge their pain, and outline a clear path forward.

Kenyans, along with the global community, hope that this address will mark the beginning of a new chapter, one where the voices of the people are heard, and their demands for justice and reform are met with genuine action.
