He is considered one of the most generous leaders in Kenya currently, and has been dishing out millions to women and bodaboda groups almost daily.
He on Saturday in Nyeri revealed where the money comes from, stating that it is his own money which comes from his own pockets and nobody's else.
But he expressed hope that soon he will be giving out even more funds from state coffers, once elected to lead Kenyans as their next President.
He reiterated his promise to set aside money to help small traders and entrepreneurs as part of his proposed bottom up economic model.
"By next year, if we form government, we shall not be using money from our pockets but from government coffers to support SMEs through the bottom up economic model," he said.
In Nyeri, he gave Sh3 million to women groups and mitumba traders in Karatina and another Sh1 million to women groups in Konyu ward.
He also gave another Sh500,000 to Konyu bodaboda groups and Sh2 million to similar groups in Mukurweini within the very same county.
Ruto's answer come amid claims by ODM leader Raila Odinga that his monies are a result of corruption and are stolen from the government.
Ruto urged Kenyans, especially natives of Mt Kenya, to shun Raila, also a presidential aspirant, whom he termed a bad man, and hand him (Ruto) the vote.
He also stated that since it is him who helped President Uhuru Kenyatta, a son of the region, secure the seat twice, it is only fair to support him in return.
"Do you want "mtu wa kitendawili" or a hustler? He has a record of destroying political parties, and disrupting government programmes such as the Big Four agenda," he told Nyeri residents.
