Like any other political leader, Deputy President William Samoei Ruto is surrounded by inner circles who plays crucial roles in political landscape. Farouk Kibet stands out to be the strongest aide in Ruto's camp. Kibet is a utility player in the league.

For the last one month, I have been gathering details to have ample evidence to pen down in this article.Farouk Kibet is son of late Paul Teigut . With no formal education ,he rose from nowhere to corridors of power. To have an intuition of who Farouk is in political arena, we have to pedal back to Fomer President Moi's era. He was one of the men behind Moi's two decade grip on power where he served as youth wing.

Farouk Kibet name came to limelight when he was mentioned in ICC for alleged involvement in 2007-2008 post election violence. He was also mentioned for second time for alleged involvement in National Youth Service scandal.

He man behind success of Dp Ruto's success. He accompanies his boss in his country tours for his campaigns as 2022 presidential election approaches.His roles in the sweeps from identifying political brokers for future alliances, organization of political rallies, determination of fate on those who want to meet Dp Ruto and controlling Ruto political budget. What blows mind much is his role and power of determining who to sit next to Ruto in political functions.

The photos below are screenshots from videos of Ruto at political rallies. Farouk has steady appearance. It was during send off of his dad where Ruto allies( Murkomen, Aden Duale, Cs Keter and Kithure Kindiki) spills Farouk's roles.Ruto admitted his success was contributed by his point man.

" It is Farouk Kibet who determines fate of those who want to meet Ruto, " Aden Duale confessed.

I have attached the explicit video link of Ruto's allies listing roles of Farouk.
