Deputy President William Ruto may be busy with a tight schedule but can spare some time to put smiles on people's faces.
The DP recently proved to be a good host after opening the doors to his office for one of his young friends who impressed him during a previous event in Bomet.
Ruto on Monday, March 11, hosted one Ian Kipkoech, a six-years-old boy who had earlier on impressed him by reciting a poem before him and other guest during one of his rallies in Bomet.
The young boy, as we have learnt had just been discharged from hospital where he had been admitted for treatment due to some swelling on his head.
News of the lunch meeting was first shared online by State House employee Dennis Itumbi through his Twitter account.
''After a few days in hospital Ian Kipkoech is out and DP William Ruto hosted him and mum for lunch as they headed back home in Bomet. To Ian, 'But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD' ~ Jeremiah 30:17,'' Itumbi tweeted.
The young boy was among entertainers at the event and recited a poem for the DP.
Interestingly, Kipkoech entertained Ruto from the shoulders of his mother who carried him as everyone present was literally moved to tears with his Baba na Mama poem.
The six-year-old boy's mother later on got a rare opportunity to speak to Ruto at the sideline and informed him of his son's ailment.
When the DP's turn came to address the huge gathering, he first promised he would take care of Ian's medical bill to see that he was fully cured.
Well, true to his promise, he did.
