Murkomen Appoints Charlene Ruto’s Friend to the KPA Board 

Njoki Wa Mathira is one of the few people who associate with President William Ruto's daughter, Charlene Ruto. The two refer to each other as sisters in several online posts.

Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen appointed Caroline Njoki, popularly known as Njoki Wa Mathira, to the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) board.

The appointment announced in a gazette notice dated Friday, January 20, stated that the young Njoki will serve for three years beginning Monday, January 23, 2023.

“In exercise of the powers conferred by section 4 (f) of the Kenya Ports Authority Act, as read together with section 51 (1) of the Interpretation and General Provisions Act, the Cabinet Secretary for Roads and Transport appoints the aforementioned,” read part of the notice.

Njoki Wa Mathira is one of the few people who associate with President William Ruto’s daughter, Charlene Ruto. The two refer to each other as sisters in several online posts.

Charlene stated at Njoki’s graduation in December 2022, “My younger sister did it. She is able to read and write. Njoki Wa Mathira, I am so proud of you for setting a good example for our youth.”

Furthermore, on Charlene’s birthday in January 2023, Njoki stated, “Charlene Ruto, my big sister, has the best birthday ever. You are brilliantly growing so strong and elegantly. Your charisma and aura have you out here doing what you do best: just being young.”

Njoki has also been accompanying Charlene for trips outside the country, including Ghana and Morocco where they visited local schools among other places.

During the campaign period, Njoki played a role in selling the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) narrative in Mt Kenya, especially in Mathira sub-county – Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s political backyard.

“I will greatly take up this role to impact purposeful change and deliver our promises to Kenyans. To all my friends and support system, thank you,” Njoki shared on Saturday, January 21.

“I am truly grateful to the president, his deputy, and the CS for bestowing their trust upon me to deliver in my capacity and in the respective area assigned to me,” she added.
