President Ruto delivered this message during Jamhuri Day which is Kenya’s Independent Day of Kenya on the 12th of December.

“I have good news for our creatives and those who imagine and produce content through Facebook and Instagram.

“Just yesterday Meta committed to helping creators in Kenya earn money for crafting original content following a pilot program with eligible creators in the country, Meta will be expanding monetization opportunities and allowing more creators to earn a living doing what they love,” said President Ruto.
