In Kenya's present geopolitical sphere, William Ruto is among the most watched and talked about politicians courtesy of political abrasiveness and style of politics. With 2022 elections drawing nigh, Ruto will be joining the presidential ring in a bid to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta.

William's political greatness is accredited to the former president Daniel Arap Moi who hauled him out of blues before casting him in power and influence.

The professor of politics did pass away a year ago and today his family led by Baringo senator Gideon Moi was celebrating Nyayo's first anniversary. In attendance was president Uhuru Kenyatta, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka among other leaders who at one time were Moi's students.

Addressing the congregant, Kalonzo hit at the DP accusing of radicalising Kenyan youths through his Hustlers vs Dynasties narrative. Ruto is driving his political course through a social-economic cleavage. The son of Tseikuru used this moment to remind William who he truly is;

"I want to remind all of us that Mzee Moi made Ruto who he is. He cannot come up with this dynasty narrative yet he has all along been part of it," he said.

"In fact Ruto you were more of a son to Mzee Moi than Gideon. You cannot then antagonise your people by creating class wars because this is radicalising of the youth." He added. Moi is being remembered for his relentless effort to enhance tolerance and unity.
