President William Ruto has for the first time revealed how much he spent on buying his coveted wedding ring.
The President who held a joint interview with journalists from leading media houses on Wednesday night was at some point put to task why he was missing his wedding ring. This is after Citizen TV journalist Sam Gituku took note that the president who is married was missing the essential symbol of being in a union.
“As we were taking a break from the Swahili episode, you were not wearing a ring and now you have one,” posed Gituku.
The president laughed off the question and went on to explain himself on the matter saying that he was in a hurry to make it to the interview on time and that is when he forgot the ring.

“Sam, you are also the only one wearing a ring here, this one does not have a ring,” he said.
“I was in a hurry to come here, I was having some meetings in the office and I had to come here. So they told me you have to dress up and go, so in the process of all that, I forgot my ring.”
“It’s very interesting that it became a subject of discussion, I thought we were having a very serious conversation here,” he said in jest.
“Let me tell you the story of the ring now that you have asked. You know when Rachel and I got married, we went to a fellow hapo River Road, so we bought rings there, by then it was Sh700. It got tired along the way so ikavunjika(got broken). Rachel is the one who took longer to get a replacement,” he narrated.
The president and the first lady tied the knot in 1991 at the AIC church.
