The 11th Vice President of the Republic of Kenya is married to Rachael Ruto in 1991 and is blessed with six children including an adopted daughter.
The vocal politician takes his family matters seriously. He is one of those Kenyans who enjoys a good relationship with his wife and children.
Today, we shift our focus to his eldest son Nick Ruto who has been seen in the limelight lately. He is said to be joining politics come 2022 when his father will be also aiming to be Kenya’s fifth president.
The 30-year-old is a businessman and a professional lawyer. Reports say that he will be vying to be a member of the parliament of Turbo Constituency where his father was an MP.
Nicholas Ruto is a ‘photocopy’ of his father William Ruto. In 2018 Nicholas Ruto was admitted to the bar as an advocate of the high court the same year DP Ruto graduated with a Ph.D. from the University of Nairobi.
Some time back Nicholas Ruto was seen in the limelight on several occasions. Nicholas Ruto is poised to join the political arena in 2022.
Nicholas Ruto is a businessman and a professional lawyer. Nicholas Ruto is a rich young Kenyan youth. At some point last year Nicholas made a personal contribution of ksh. 250,000 to the fundraising of Nyamasore Catholic Church in Rarieda Constituency.
Together with his friends and others around ksh.800,000 was raised for the Church.
Wealth and Scandals
We can confidently assume that young Ruto has never stepped in a courtroom to represent a client, meaning he is yet to get his first salary.
Nick Ruto is still stinking rich despite lack of a job or any history to do with work. The internet was awash with reports that EACC had frozen his accounts on 1st April.
But that should not take away the fact that Nick is stinking rich; he has more than 90% of Kenyans will make in their lifetime.
Some people have placed his source of wealth on entrepreneurship. A story on a popular website says he owns different companies which supply goods to the government; which is still a crime!
In 2017, as the heat on the importation of maize from Mexico almost boiled over, it was revealed that Nick Ruto was among the people who imported maize from Mexico.
In November last year, investigations into the NCPB scandal revealed that Nick Ruto was one of the people who supplied maize to the board in Eldoret.
Koilel Farm Limited which was registered on October 2, 2015, in the name of Ruto’s wife Rael Chebet Kimeto and son Nicholas Kipkurgat Ruto, was allegedly paid sh. 20.8 million for supplying 11,844 bags of maize.
Ruto’s representatives later confirmed supplying maize to the NCPB. Those are the sources of Nick Ruto’s monies.
