Man on a mission:Ruto's 126 meetings in 60 days.

Sources from Nation indicates that,in his first 60 days in office, President William Ruto has hosted 126 public meetings, often at a time under pressure to fulfill the numerous commitments he made during the campaign.

Nation Newsplex Analysis shows that since his swearing-in on September 13, Dr Ruto has been without any engagements at least those publicised by him through his verified social media pages as well as those of State House on only five days.These include September 15th, September 24th,October 1st, October 21st and October 29th. On these dates, he would have been meeting with various people to form his 22-member Cabinet.

The head of state had 25 meetings between November 1st and November 12th, the majority of them during his two days of attendance at the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.He has also been to the United Kingdom, the United States, Ethiopia, Uganda and Tanzania.

In all, 68 separate meetings and events have taken place at the President's official residence at the State House in Nairobi. Of these, 18 were with Kenyans from various walks of life and 44 were with diplomats and Heads of State who were visiting.

Overall, he has participated in 32 engagements outside of the nation, 11 in neighboring counties and 17 inside Nairobi County but outside of State House.Despite all of these efforts, Kenyans won't really appreciate Dr. Ruto's labor of love until they start to notice the cost of living declining and the promises he has laid forth coming true.
