Surprisingly,DP Ruto indicated that he would not thwart any potential bachelor’s efforts.
“Hawa ni watoto wangu, Sherlyn na June. Nimeona nitembee nao. Sasa nyinyi wenyewe mutajitetea, mutajipange,” (here I give you my daughters, Sherlyn and June with whom I have visited your town. Those interested will have to argue their case).”
The crowd went ecstatic as Sherlyn and June smiled to their dad’s remarks.
A few courageous team mafisi appeared to hover around the girls and throw in a few lines to the friendly girls as DP Ruto looked on at a distance.
“I think the DP could be interested in tapping the Nabongo Mumias (leadership) genes by specifically offering his girls to people from Mumias,” said Alfred Obongita who watched the unfolding events from a distance.
The DP and his daughters seemed to feel at home and cozy with the crowd.His bodyguards hardly interfered.
The Deputy President was accompanied by his pilot along with his two daughters who went on to Bungoma for another function after touring Mumias.
