Since he was sworn in on Tuesday, September 13, Kenya’s President William Ruto has been a man on a mission.
Having made dozens of promises during the campaign period, the Head of State has in his 60 days in office been working day and night to fulfill the pledges he made.
A ‘Nation Newspaper’ analysis on Monday, November 14, has revealed that the Head of State has held more than 120 meetings both locally and internationally.
For instance, in September alone, the president held 16 meetings outside the country, with 22 having been held at State House Nairobi.
This month alone, President Ruto has held 25 meetings most of them during the just concluded United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Egypt.
This was the sixth international trip since he officially took over from his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kivumbi.co.ke understands that the first in command has been branded a ‘workaholic’ due to his hard work even before assuming office.
During his visits, the then-deputy president met with women, youths, leaders, congregations, and even commercial sex workers.
To make his work easier, Ruto used choppers to get to his destinations and a fleet of high-powered vehicles to criss-cross the markets and towns within the counties.
In May this year, National Assembly deputy Speaker Gladys Boss Shollei revealed that William Ruto usually wakes up at 5:00 am and can work even past midnight.
“William Ruto is a guy who can do 16 functions in one day. He wakes up at 5:00 am and can work till midnight,” Shollei said
