Is Generous DP Ruto Kenya's New Mr Moneybags?

On June 9 Deputy President William Ruto donated U.S.$20,000 million in Rumuruti, Laikipia County, and a total of U.S.$70,000 on May 26 in Nakuru - U.S.$20,000 to the Holy Cross Catholic Church, and U.S.$50,000 towards development of various projects, including a school bus, in Kapkures, Nakuru West just to mention a few. Even in his immense generosity, Ruto argues that while he is not a poor man, he was being subjected to a scrutiny together with those he said were way richer than him.
