“Your Excellency, it’s my humble submission that Jeruto is not only performing a national duty but is the face of Kenyan beauty to the world, a responsibility that should be catered within the Ministries of Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs as well as Sports, Culture and the Arts  with support from the Ministry of Tourism.
