President William Ruto's daughter Charlene Ruto has today emphasised the need to reflect and heal as a nation.

Charlene spoke when she visited young people injured during the recent protests.

"I believe it's time to reflect and heal as a nation as we search our deepest postures of patriotism, forgiveness and integration as one people! God bless Kenya! We are one," she said.

During her visit, Charlene thanked those who helped the injured in different ways.

"It was a very emotional day visiting some young people and members of the public who found themselves as unfortunate victims of the chaos that surfaced in recent days,"

"I want to thank the medical fraternity including Kenya Tissue Association,  Medics for Kenya, Kenyan by Blood Foundation, my fellow blood ambassadors and many other teams for collaboratively donating blood needed during this period."

On July 5, Charlene asked youths to seize the opportunity and use it to articulate their issues during President Ruto's engagement with Kenyans on X. 

Charlene in a message on X described the opportunity as a "chance of a lifetime" that can better be utilized by engaging constructively.

"Young people, the chance of a lifetime awaits you. I encourage you to use it wisely and engage constructively because you are the ones who will determine the continuity of such levels of discussion for your success," she said in a statement on X.

According to Charlene, the X-Space engagement will be historic in a way given that Ruto will be the first President to have done such.

"The first ever president in the world to hold an online meeting with all Gen Z. Leggoo!" she added.
