Kenya’s first daughter, Charlene Chelagat Ruto, is in Uganda for the Julius Nyerere Leadership Centre (JNLC) Presidential Lecture Series (PLS).

This is an annual event that exposes students and the broader community to inspiring ideas, courageous leadership and models of civic engagement and civil discourse.


Charlene who arrived in the country on Wednesday, was the main speaker of the intergenerational fireside discussion (Ekyooto) with female student leaders from universities held at Nsambya Gardens in Kampala.

On the same occasion, Her Excellency Fatoumata Jallow-Tambajang, the former Vice-President of The Gambia, and Minister of Women’s Affairs, also had a conversation with female student leaders.
