Kenyan President William Ruto has gained widespread attention on social media after billboards bearing his image were erected in a foreign country ahead of his official visit next week. The billboards in Comoros, written in Swahili, warmly welcome President Ruto alongside Comoros President Azali Assoumani. The striking billboards have elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans, with many praising Ruto as an international figure.
Ruto’s global recognition was further enhanced by his remarkable speech on climate change and financing to youth at the Champs “de Mars” in Paris, two weeks ago.
Notably, Ruto’s recent advocacy for African leaders’ respect by their European counterparts in Johannesburg, South Africa, further bolstered his reputation among continental leaders. With his growing international profile and impactful speeches, Ruto’s presence on the billboards in Comoros serves as a testament to his rising prominence on the global stage.
