TMZ.CO.KE takes a look at William Ruto vs Gideon Moi Net Worths.
Deputy President William Ruto, or simply Dr Ruto, styles himself as a hustler. A man who beat the odds to get to where he is today. He associates his earlier hustles to that of commoners who survive on a less than a dollar a day. William Samoei Ruto is generous to a fault; he will criss-cross counties dishing out millions of shillings in fundraising to schools and churches. From his humble beginnings, Ruto now ranks among the wealthiest people in Kenya. From the same backyard of Rift Valley, we have Baringo County senator Gideon Moi. The son of Kenya second President, Daniel arap Moi, was born in privilege. Moi ran the country like a personal fiefdom and his word was law.
The wealth he plundered over the years propelled him to the elite club of Kenyan billionaires. His son is a beneficiary of this plunder. Although Ruto is a Johnny come lately, he has amassed a lot of wealth which has been attributed to corrupt dealing.
So what’s the net worth of William Ruto?
The DP has always been cagey when it comes to revealing his net worth. During an interview on BBC HARDtalk show, the DP was visibly worked up when the host, Stephen Sackur, questioned his source of wealth and his net worth.
When Sackur prodded him to reveal his net worth the DP responded:
“It is in public domain. I encourage you to Google and find out what William Ruto owns….”
Ruto went on to tell the veteran journalist:
“You should have done some research before you came. I encourage you, Sackur, to go to the website on Parliament and get that information. I am prepared to tell you where to find the information, Sackur….”
Ruto source of wealth has always been a subject of discussion on social media platform and offline too. Deputy President William Ruto net worth is kes30 billion, according to estimates on different online news outlet.
Baringo Senator Gideon Moi was born in old money. Unlike his political nemesis William Ruto, the scion of Kenya second President has known wealth all his life. He has a string of businesses in Kenya and abroad. Gideon Moi net worth is over 550 million sterling pounds (shs75 billion).
