Meet David Samoei, William Ruto’s Little Known Brother and What He Does For a Living

David Samoei, who is Ruto’s blood brother tells his story. A story of hope and a story of champion. David’s road to prominence as a philanthropist, businessman, and master’s graduate from Capella University, USA began with a challenge some childhood that did not spare even his other 5 siblings DP Ruto included.

He was born William Kipchirchir Samoei Arap Ruto on 21 December 1966 in the village of Sugoi, Uasin Gishu County to the family of Mr. and Mrs. Cheruiyot. Mr. Ruto started his education at the Kamagut Primary School before proceeding to Wareng Secondary School for his Ordinary Level education and Kapsabet Boys, for his Advanced Levels.

In his part of aid, he is a tourist but not in wildlife or nature person. He tours the challenged households all over Kenya, identifies the problems, and directs the identified grievances to relevant stakeholders and leaders.

In his childhood time, he used to walk four kilometers to school. At that time, shoes were only meant for the rich and abled thus of disadvantage to him. This exposed him to many kinds of diseases and infections which spared him all that time.

He has one wife known as Carol Ruto and his children have never appeared to the public.
“There were no roads in the village I was brought up in Uasin Gishu…It was a forgotten area in the interior,” he said.

The family’s humble beginning has however shaped him as a person. In his major career, he is a messenger and has never worked for the Government. Responding to one Media House, he said that;
“I do not work for the Government.

I am equivalent to a messenger, I visit any part of the country in discriminatory as every part of Kenya is important. I witness the problems and speak to the area MP for an amicable solution.” Adding to that, he said that Kenyans need Leaders more than they avail themselves and he does all that not because he is aiming at a political scrap but for the interest of poor and vulnerable Kenyans.

“We just don’t want to see or hear stories from people of problems that they are facing. We are making a visit to the area to ensure action is taken. Last week (December 2019) we were at the interior of Mathare Slums.” He said.
