Her poem ‘Mahustler Huelewana’ on Sunday, February 9 at an ACK in diocese of Kerugoya touched the Deputy President William Ruto who was present.
“Huku ni Kirinyaga, Huku kuna baridi hata locusts wamehama,” said Nyakio sending those present reeling with laughter.
She went ahead to identify herself with the DP’s slogan ‘hustler’ by calling herself ‘Hustler Mdogo’.
She said that she had seen how devoted the DP was in church affairs, and she was praying for him.
“I have been praying for you, I have. A message for you a revelation for you. Many may not understand, that’s okay,” she added.
In what appears like an encouragement the girl reads out a scripture from the Bible-quoting Psalms 23 which emphasizes God’s help and protection during tough times.

After her poem, the girl rushes to hug the DP Ruto who can’t hide his delight as he smiles broadly.
This is not the first time a young poet warmed the Deputy President William Ruto’s heart.
In 2015, an eight-year-old girl moved the DP to tears after praising the DP claiming she was the only one allowed to call him ‘Uncle Willy’.
The DP had attended a fundraising ceremony in Meru where the little girl performed.
Little Nina described Ruto as a good person and a leader this earning friendship of the DP.
