Politics and family are like conjoined twins. Kenyan politics are majorly based on how one treats his or her family and a politician who the family stands behind has better chances among the society than one who doesn't value their family. Deputy President William Ruto seems to understand this so well and has sent his family out of their home and straight to the political field to woo voters to his side.
And just as he said he was a man on a mission, DP Ruto is not taking chances and he is maximizing his family in the hunt for votes. His wife Rachel Ruto and their eldest son Nick Ruto have taken the assignment quite well and are showing dedication in bringing more sites to their father's basket.
On Wednesday, William Ruto's wife Rachel Ruto stole the hearts of many after appearing on top of a car in Nakuru while campaigning. This happened just a month after Nick Ruto represented his dad in a political function in Kericho county. Barely a month later Nick Ruto took a step in his life considered a major factor in politics, marriage. The discrete event was said to be a stamp of authority to do away with the damage that a controversial video that went viral of Nick Ruto last year on his birthday.
Rachel Ruto has on her part reintroduced the once-popular women group JOYWO and has been traversing the country meeting up women and empowering them. Her reintroducing the group now, a few months to election is not coincidental but a move to use the said group to search for votes.
The two are definitely acting on the instructions of the UDA presidential candidate.
The group was registered in 2009 by the second lady. It involves women coming together to save money and doing table banking. The money is then loaned out for women to do livelihood projects or capacity building.
