Zakayo is a nickname Kenyans have been using to refer to President William Ruto. The Head of State has acknowledged that he is aware how Kenyans call him.

In February 2024 while addressing Kenyans living in Japan, he said Kenya will only be built by its revenue and taxes, not aid and debt.

“What I will not do as president is say there will be free lunch, that the country is going to be developed by borrowing money from other people and that it is going to cost us nothing to develop our country,” said Ruto insisted.

“That is why I don’t mind people calling me names. You see when you are doing the right thing, your concise is clear. I will do the right thing for our country irrespective of what names people call me, including Zakayo.”

Zakayo', is a Swahili name for Zacchaeus, the biblical figure who is portrayed as a greedy tax collector who climbed a tree to see Jesus. (Hence Shusho's graphics for her song above)
