DP Ruto Chicken Farm: Deputy President William Ruto has revealed that he rakes in Sh. 1.5 million from his chicken farming business. DP Ruto made the revelation while responding to a list of properties belonging to him that was leaked by interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i.
“They should have said that there are 200,000 chickens and I sell 150,000 eggs a day earning me Sh. 1.5 million,” said DP Ruto. The deputy president said that much of what Matiang’i had revealed belongs to him but there were properties that he did not own, and which the minister had alleged he owned.
In a parliamentary committee session that was held on Wednesday, Interior CS Fred Matiang’i had alleged that the deputy president is the second most protected individual in Kenya. Matiang’i had said that cumulatively, DP Ruto is guarded by 257 officers.

“Lifestyle audit had been done on me by newspapers saying that Ruto has this kind of wealth but now, those at the Office of President have decided to improve what had been done before by local dailies,” DP Ruto said. “They have tried conducting lifestyle audits, which is not bad but they should have continued with it on other leaders for things to be okay.”
