"Simpilicity" Kenyans Reacts On Missing Aide-de-Camp, Ruto & Gachagua Carrying Own Bags; Here's Why

During the Cabinet retreat in Nyeri County on Saturday, January 7, President William Ruto was seen carrying his own suitcase alongside other officials.

The actions of Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua also raised a number of PR issues.

More Kenyans also questioned why Colonel Fabian Lengusuranga, Ruto's aide-de-camp (ADC), did not help the President carry his briefcase.

One of the inquiries on whether the transfer was purposeful or a protocol hiccup stated, "Where is the Aide-de-Camp (ADC)?"

The president's bag is often carried by the aid-de-camp (ADC), while other leaders are supported by their bodyguards or personal aides.

Experts in security and public relations examined the president's behavior. Public relations professionals asserted that the president aimed to portray himself as populist.

"It seems that the President prefers to adhere to his Hustlers Philosophy, which is entirely focused on the poor, rather than the 'almighty' label.

He is attempting to blend in as the group talks about something. As you can see, even the others don't have bodyguards, according to PR specialist Tsar Newton, who spoke to

Newton believed that by running on the hustler platform, the President was demonstrating that neither his character nor his views had changed since becoming the nation's leader.

Throughout his campaigns, Ruto was frequently spotted munching corn on the side of the road or openly engaging with bystanders.

The Hotel Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, where Ruto was hosting the Cabinet retreat, was thought to be reasonably secure, thus Kenyans did not voice any security worries.

Ruto was adamant about the necessity to reduce expenses during the retreat. He reportedly gave his cabinet secretaries the option of sending their personal helpers home or paying their own expenses.

In addition, he refused to let three principal secretaries (PSs) attend the Cabinet meeting at the Mount Kenya Safari Club because they were late.
