Deputy President William Ruto will, on Friday December 21, celebrate his biggest day yet.
The DP is set to graduate with a PhD from the University of NairobiÂ on a day that triples as his wedding anniversary as well as his birthday.
Ruto, who is set to graduate alongside 9,000 others, successfully defended his thesis titled â€śInfluence of Anthropogenic Activities on Land Use in Western Kenyaâ€ť.
He was born on December 21, 1966, inÂ Sambut village, Kamagut, Uasin GishuÂ countyÂ and married his wife Rachel Ruto on the same day in 1991.
He was pursuing a PhD in Plant Ecology at the University andÂ failed to graduate with the 2017 cohort over what he had termedÂ set requirements.
Ruto, in April, revealed the main reason why he kept visiting western was since he got his wife, Rachel Ruto, from the region.
“Oparanya says I come to Kakamega often. It’s true. I got my better half from here,” shared the DP.
Rachel grew up in Kakamega and attended Likuyani Primary School before proceeding to the renown Butere Girls High School.
Ruto will also be turning 52 on Friday.
He was on Thursday, December 20 spotted at the Universityâ€™s rehearsals.
