Media personality Stella Katiwa, popularly known as Miss Katiwa, called out President William Ruto regarding his change of lifestyle, particularly his weight gain since taking office on September 13, 2022.

In a letter to the President addressed in Sheng and posted on her Instagram on Saturday, February 4, the sassy lady, who hosted a show dubbed Jamdown on NTV before leaving on January 31, 2022, lamented that the Head of State had abandoned his keep-fit lifestyle from the campaign period prior to the August 9 general elections.

While expressing her unhappiness regarding Ruto's weight gain, Katiwa invited him to a popular sports club in Nairobi for fitness exercises together to ensure that he sustains a healthy lifestyle more than 100 days into the role of the most powerful man in the country.

"My president, His Excellency Hon. William Samoei Ruto, I'm a ghetto girl and my residence is 8town/Laini 7, I recognise you and respect you a lot, but not in a bad way and don't get upset, I don't know if it's just me, you used to look good and fit before you became President.

"There's a way in which you have gained weight and I'm not happy about it, not in a bad way, but I want to invite you to Impala Sports Club we exercise together, we have a jogging track, a gym and a swimming pool, there's a massage parlour in case the pressures get the better of you, then you can wrap it up at the sauna or steam bath, within two weeks or one month, you will be back to normal," she wrote.

Katiwa added that the Head of State will be allocated the best professional trainers and delicious food available at its clubhouse, which would also be used for socialising and one-on-one talks regarding issues affecting the youth in informal settlements.

"I know at the moment things are crazy in there with politics but Kenyans out here are struggling and have tension, they don't want to find themselves in situations of being used because of being desperate for money, so they want to know what the plans are, but I know you will find the time we talk about one or two things," she added.

She further expressed that the exercises will help him make better decisions for the greater good of the country.

Katiwa further called upon President Ruto to weed out the leaders in his government who have been underperforming in the new regime, adding that some of their leadership skills have not sat well with the youth of Kenya.

"This exercise should also help you make good decisions but we also want you to get rid of the incompetent leaders, there are some who don't have leadership skills within the government and youths are not happy, they don't want bad influence from them.

"Anyways enjoy Burundi and may this reach you Mr President Sir. Okay, bye," she concluded while sharing a photo of President Ruto in Burundi for an extraordinary summit on the worsening security situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Her letter provoked reactions from Kenyans, with some insinuating that he has been wearing his bulletproof vest during his travels, which makes him look like he has added weight.

Katiwa lives a healthy lifestyle, with several social media updates of herself in gym gear doing a number of exercises to improve and maintain her attractive body shape.

On October 22, 2022, former Nyeri Town Member of Parliament, Ngunjiri Wambugu revealed that the President runs for 8 kilometres a day, something he has done for over 10 years.
