Rachel Ruto Kicks Off Presidential Campaigns for Husband William Ruto (VIDEO)

Deputy President William Ruto’s wife Mama Rachel has officially hit the campaign trail to drum up support for her husband in his presidential bid.

On Thursday, April 7, Rachel, through her Mama Doing Good initiative, held a meeting with women in Nanyuki, Laikipia county where they discussed among other things the importance of taking the NHIF cover.

However, after the forum, she asked the women who had graced the event to vote for her husband Ruto in the elections slated for Tuesday, August 9.

The Second Lady insisted that the second in command was best suited to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.

She also drummed up support for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party which the DP will be using in his stab at the presidency.

“I stand here as the wife of Deputy President William Ruto. We all know what is coming in August. Please, let us all vote for him and also support our UDA party,” said Rachel.

Finally, she asked the audience to pray for the country so that it can have peaceful elections and the subsequent leadership transition.

She said despite being castigated for his huge church contributions, Ruto will continue being generous because it is just who he is.

“I am just saying that you stop complaining that he is donating too much. He will continue donating, and donating until he has no more to give. The Bible says that he who gives also receives. I know the deputy president and he has Kenya’s interest at heart,” she said.
