President-elect Ruto: How I Met My Wife Rachel

President-elect Ruto :How I Met My Wife Rachel

Friday, 19th August 2022, Nairobi Kenya.

President-elect William Ruto and Rachel Ruto each have a unique love story that led to their union.

In a prior interview from around ten years ago, Ruto had recalled that he had met the love of his life in the church that they both frequented.

"She was a choir member, just like I was, and we belonged to a group called North Rift Evangelistic Team.Together, we used to travel to different locations for missions. She completed an education course," he said.

Rachael attended Kenyatta University to pursue a Bachelor of Education degree after completing her secondary education at Butere Girls High School.

"Our love story began when she was sent to Kessup Girls for teaching practice and I was often present. What follows is history," Ruto said.

Ruto and Rachel have been together since 1991, and they are currently parenting seven kids.

In 2016, Ruto was moved by the tale of a young girl named Nadia who was abandoned when she was a baby and gave her his mother Cherono's name.

"The tale of Nadia, who was abandoned as a newborn, found buried with her body partially decomposing, and has been cared for by Sisters at Madre Ippolata Children's Home, struck my heart. I gave her the name Cherono in honor of my mother and adopted her into my family," he wrote on Facebook.

In Uasin Gishu County, 52 orphanages hosted wedding anniversary celebrations for Ruto and Rachel in December 2020. He was also acknowledging their anniversaries.

At his Sugoi house, where he was celebrating his 54th birthday and 28 years of marriage, Ruto urged Kenyan families to assist those from underprivileged backgrounds.

As soon as Ruto is sworn in as president-elect, Rachel will undoubtedly take over as first lady of Kenya. Many people admire her because of her modest demeanor and her religious beliefs.

Ruto attributes Rachel's prayers for him to his swift ascent and success in politics.
