Deputy President William Ruto was a proud dad on Wednesday after his eldest son Nick Ruto was given the license to practice law.
The younger Ruto, who bears a striking resemblance to his father, was among 223 budding lawyers admitted to the bar at a ceremony presided by Chief Justice David Maraga at the Supreme Court Building.
Present to witness Nick Ruto become an advocate of the High Court was his mother Rachel Ruto and younger brother.
The whole Ruto family met later to celebrate Nick’s milestone, with DP Ruto taking to his official Twitter account to congratulate his son.
“Hearty congratulations Nick Ruto for being admitted to the bar. As you begin a career in the legal profession, may you stand true to your calling as a defender of justice, human rights and an avid campaigner for equality and truth,” he tweeted.
The younger Ruto was in December 2018 gazetted as an advocate, qualifying him to argue a case in court.
It was a quadruple celebration for the Ruto family on December 21. In addition to turning 52, DP Ruto celebrated 27 years of marriage, and he also graduated with a Ph.D. in Plant Ecology from UoN.
