Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto is a man who had been mentioned in many scandals.
William Ruto doesn’t inspire any goodwill among people who know him better.
A hard-nosed rhetorician who built his politician name against the backdrop of bringing Kenya’s independence party the Kenya African National Union (KANU) to power in the multiparty election in 1992.
DP Ruto then a member of the Youth For KANU (YK92) together with washed up and broke politician Cyrus Jirongo has continued in that legacy of mostly not defending his tarnished name.
DP Ruto was a guest if International Criminal Court, a person adversely mentioned in the Ksh21 billion Kimwarer and Arror dam scandal, a person names in the grabbing of Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) and Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) lands; not to mention the many church Harambees that the DP attends and gives money that is equally to his year salary.
Yesterday, Ruto broke ground for a Leadership Institute constructed in his name at one of East Africa’s most prestigious universities.
Kenyans were up in arms against the construction of the William Ruto Leadership Institute by one of the prestigious Universities in East Africa.
Many termed it a sacrilege against Makerere University.
Read their comments.
A William Ruto Leadership Institute @MakerereU is the most absurd and utterly inconceivable blunder in the history of higher education in Africa. Today @MakerereU is the laughing stock of the world. I expect students, faculty, and staff to quickly erase this abomination. Now!

I WILL not be as blatant as the others but anyone calling any institution, "William Ruto Leadership Institute" is just a joker. Iam sure even TangaTanga are shocked by the level to which Makerere can take the joke.

97 years of hard work and dedication to build an icon, watered down by greed and selfish ambitions. Of all the universities, it had to be Makerere! WHY? https://t.co/Lx0ZiEh1Kf
