President William Ruto has revealed that he is now a grandfather for the first time courtesy of his son Nick.
Nick, who is a lawyer by profession got married to his long time girlfriend, Evelyn Chemtai in January last year through a colourful ‘koito’ traditional ceremony in line with traditional Kalenjin customs.
At an interdenominational prayer service at Nanyuki Stadium on Sunday, the president thanked the people of Laikipia County for giving him a daughter-in-law. He also revealed that Evelyn has since been blessed with a young one.
“Last year, we came here to pay dowry and I now want to thank the people of Laikipia, who gave my son a wife, because we have been blessed with a grandchild,” said the commander in chief.
“Perhaps my being early here has to do with that! So thank you to the people of Laikipia for giving be a daughter-in-law. Our family is growing,” he added.
Nick got admitted to the bar in 2019 as an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya.
