"Look Elsewhere" President Ruto Warns Bosses Asking Their Female Employees on Dates

President William Ruto, has spoken out against bosses who ask their female employees out on dates, stating that such behavior is unacceptable and must stop.

Speaking at a public event in Starehe on Monday, 6th March 2023, Ruto made it clear that female employees are not in the workplace to be objectified or harassed by their male bosses. "She is there to work, and you're busy asking her for dates, go look somewhere else," Ruto warned.

Ruto's remarks come amid growing concerns over workplace harassment and discrimination against women in Kenya.

Recent studies have shown that many women in the country have experienced sexual harassment or assault in the workplace, and that such incidents often go unreported due to fear of retaliation or lack of support from employers.

Ruto stressed that employers have a duty to create safe and respectful working environments for all employees, regardless of gender. He also emphasized that such behavior is not only illegal, but it also undermines the dignity and rights of female employees.

"We must all work together to end this culture of harassment and discrimination against women in the workplace," Ruto said. "Employers must take responsibility for creating safe and respectful work environments, and we must all be vigilant in calling out unacceptable behavior."

Ruto's comments have been widely praised by women's rights activists and advocates for gender equality in the workplace. Many have hailed his strong stance against workplace harassment and discrimination and called on other leaders and employers to follow his lead.

It is hoped that Ruto's words will encourage employers to take a more proactive approach to tackling harassment and discrimination against women in the workplace, and that they will send a clear message that such behavior will not be tolerated
