Deputy President William Ruto spent the better part of his Sunday August 16th herding his flock. Photos have emerged.
The Deputy President who has been missing in action for atleast a month now appeared on Sunday fully dressed up for the village occasion.
Cladded in safari boots and cowboy hat with a long herding stick, he could be seen looking after his multimillion flock which included dairy cows, sheep and goats.
In another photo that caused excitement, the second in command was captured carrying high a lamp as he returned it to the barn.
Our sources indicated that the multimillion ranch is located in Taita Taveta where he bought it from former MP Basil Criticos. The ranch was sometimes back under government radar due to illegal connections of water. The farm manager was arrested shortly before he was released.
Amazed Kenyans flooded the DP with praises for his humble life even when he is serving as the second most powerful man, while others questioned his immense wealth especially the multimillion ranch which has always attracted unanswered questions about how he got to where he is today.
The DP’s family also runs another multimillion venture in his Surgoi Village where he rears chicken in an expansive farm that is reported to be giving him millions in income every month.
Before rising to power, Dr. Ruto used to sell chicken at Kambi Kuku area along the busy Webuye-Eldoret road something he has never forgotten todate as he keeps visiting the area to check on his allies.
Ruto’s photos are surfacing just a day after the head of State send the whole cabinet on an 11 day compulsory leave. Principal Secretaries and Chief Administration Secretaries were also affected in a move that might see reshuffles happen though still unconfirmed.
The leave circular was signed and issued by Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua in which he stated that all CSs will, during the period, be conducting site tours to oversee development projects.
