William Ruto’s Wealth
Eldoret North MP William Ruto has become the first presidential candidate to shade light on his personal wealth. Declaring ones wealth is one area of Kenyan politics that usually smacks more of a PR stunt than an actual desire to inform the voting citizenry of the politician’s personal wealth.
But William Ruto has done it with such earnestness and transparency that one is inclined to believe that the URP candidate has a made a proper and thorough accounting of his wealth which is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions.
Ruto’s has always claimed that he is a self-made man who dragged himself up by the straps of his own boots and that his personal wealth has always been a matter of public knowledge.
“I am determined to run for President because I understand what hustlers go through and can assemble the will to give a real chance to the ordinary Kenyan to be something. This election we will prove that even the children of paupers can be something in Kenya,” said Ruto yesterday.
