It is said that he has neglected his parental role of providing for his child that is said to have sired with a former Moi University student in 2006.
The mother of the child alleged that she had a relationship with the Deputy President William Ruto who was by then the Member of Parliament of Eldoret North Constituency from 2005 which made her conceive in March 2016 hence giving birth to a baby girl.
The former Uasin Gishu High School receptionist said that at first Mr. Ruto was taking care of the child, but upon becoming the Deputy President of Kenya, he neglected his parental responsibilities.
The lady further said that the Deputy President has been only been taking his responsibility as a parent when the lady threatens him to move the matter to court.
According to the mother of the elven-year-old girl, she has been forced to do odd jobs to support her daughter as from 2013 whereas her father is a financially stable person who can fend for her daughter.
Also, the lady said that from 2013 the father of her daughter only sent 40,000 to her through her aid and has since gone quiet concerning the issue.
After the lady could not bear it anymore she had since through her lawyer Gitobu Imanyara moved to court so that through the court Mr. Ruto can be compelled to provide upkeep for his daughter.
Allegations have also emerged from Imanyara that his client is being threatened by unknown people compounding her problems bearing in mind that she is struggling to provide for a child as a single mother who has no permanent job.
Imanyara said that he was to take legal action against Ruto earlier on but bearing in mind that the mother of the child was a student he suspended the case.He said that could have interfered with her client education.
The mother further said that the minor suffering will end after being provided with most of her basic necessities which she is entitled to from her parent.
According to sources, the deputy president has been sued for two million shillings child upkeep.This has made the name of Ruto to be tarnished bearing in mind that he is a Christian and a national leader.
