In the face of criticism and skepticism, President William Ruto stands firm, defending his frequent foreign trips as essential to Kenya’s economic prosperity. Addressing the congregation during a recent church service in Uasin Gishu, Ruto passionately articulated how these trips have paved the way for substantial economic gains for the nation.
Ruto’s commitment to the country’s progress was evident as he shared insights into his recent visit to Saudi Arabia. During this trip, he successfully negotiated a bilateral labor agreement that promises employment opportunities for a staggering 350,000 Kenyans. The signing of this groundbreaking agreement is slated within the next three weeks, marking a significant milestone in Kenya’s workforce expansion.
Despite facing criticism from some quarters, including Vihiga Senator Godfrey Osotsi, who voiced concerns about the economic challenges facing the nation, Ruto remains undeterred. He sees his role as the country’s chief agent and ambassador, diligently working to secure deals that bolster Kenya’s economic standing on the global stage.
Eldas Member of Parliament Adan Keynan echoed this sentiment, emphasizing that Ruto’s trips are not mere excursions but strategic endeavors aimed at securing economic gains. He emphasized that every visit abroad is meticulously planned to benefit Kenyans, underscoring Ruto’s role as a key player in Kenya’s economic diplomacy.

As the nation eagerly awaits the signing of the bilateral labor agreement with Saudi Arabia, Ruto’s endeavors continue to shape Kenya’s economic landscape. His determination to secure a better future for Kenyans remains unwavering, solidifying his position as a proactive leader dedicated to steering Kenya toward prosperity through strategic international engagements.
