DP William Ruto who pretends to be a born again christian has acknowledged having a child with another woman and refuted claims that he has not been taking care her.
A woman sued Ruto for child support on Thursday, saying she wanted him compelled to support the girl.
The Deputy President responded via Twitter shortly after.
My 11 year old child Abby is well catered for including her education in private boarding school.Politicians& Busybodies should keep off.

Ruto asked politicians to keep off his affairs and concentrate on more important issues.
“Politicians and busybodies should keep off,” he said.
The woman indicated in her court documents that she met Ruto in 2005 while studying at Moi University.
She said, through lawyer Gitobu Imanyara, that her child was born on March 6, 2006 at Mediheal Hospital.
“The respondent has failed to provide the minor with adequate and basic necessities such as good health, food, school fees, clothing, shelter and medication,” she said.

@WilliamsRuto personal matters must stay personal for the sake of the innocent child who did not choose their parents.
