Deputy President William Ruto has been on the spotlight lately from dancing to ‘Mateke’ at Jaguar’s launch to offering to pay for Size 8’s maternity bill, the DP has adopted a girl from a children’s home.

Ruto was touched by a story of a girl called Nadia who was abandoned as a new born and has adopted her giving her the name of his mother, Cherono.

“The story of Nadia who was found buried, her body partly decomposing and abandoned as as newborn and has been nder the care of Sisters at Madre Ippolata Children’s Home touched my heart. I have named her Cherono, after my mother and made her part of my family,” he said on his Facebook post.

The Rutos now have a new addition.
