In August 2022, William Ruto won the Kenya election, after some outcry of cheating and hacking by his rival Railia Odinga. Ruto was declared the winner by the Supreme Court of Kenya. However there was no further explanation into the 2 different figures on voting ballets, or the claims of unofficial polling stations.

Ruto's winning party UDA then started encouraging or intimidating MP's from the Odinga Azima party into jumping ship. As many changed their political party to that of William Ruto's. This lead many Kenyans into an uproar as those who they voted for switched party's after their wins.

Kenyans declared that they hadn't voted for them based on being UDA MP's. In one incident there was a riot outside of one elected officials office.

Ruto just like Trump has a history of issues within his marriage, many Kenyans have accused him of cheating, they even have a name for one of his "alleged" girlfriends. There has been no proof in the public but several media stories and people who have spoken on these topics. The adulterer Donald Trump has a history, his 5 children come from 3 different women.

Trump also had an affair with a stripper and paid her money to keep silent and he was caught doing so as well. Ruto has been accused of beating his wife Rachael as well. Ruto has some 7 children and his current wife is said to be his second wife, whom seems very shy to speak up in public.

She made several news paper covers in Kenya with a battered face, one news outlet asked where she was. She had gone missing for some time and was absent from a family trip. Speculation flew and it came out in news that unconfirmed reports were that she was in a hospital in South Africa getting treatment for injuries she "allegedly" received as the result of being beaten for an argument she had with Ruto about "alleged" cheating.

Like Donald Trump, William Ruto is making money while in office as the president of Kenya, at his owned hotels and land. Ruto has a nickname of "land grabber".

Something that isn’t new in Kenyan government however he’s charging his government for staying at his own hotel and making a shit load of money doing so. Ruto also said Kenya was living beyond its means by taking out loans then charges Kenya’s government to use his hotel.

Trump’s company charged Secret Service ‘exorbitant’ hotel rates to protect the first family, House committee report says

The committee found that the Trump Organization charged the Secret Service “excessive nightly rates on dozens of trips” as high as $1,185 per night despite claims by the former President’s company that federal employees traveling with him would stay at those properties “for free” or “at cost.”

“The exorbitant rates charged to the Secret Service and agents’ frequent stays at Trump-owned properties raise significant concerns about the former President’s self-dealing and may have resulted in a taxpayer-funded windfall for former President Trump’s struggling businesses,” the panel’s chairwoman, New York Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney, wrote in a letter to the service’s director on Monday.

Donald Trump once in a speech told police to not be so nice be a little rough as they were arresting suspects. Suggesting they hit their heads on police cars. Ruto has done the same in a recent speech, telling Kenyan police not to tussle with those they were arresting he said, you have your guns, use them.

"Please don't be too nice," he said to the audience in Long Island, New York.

While the speech was largely focused on the fight against the gang MS-13, it appeared that Trump was directing his comments about police interactions with suspected criminals in general.

He described the precautions typically taken by police where they place a hand over a suspect's head while they're being put into a police car to protect them.

"When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just seen them thrown in, rough. I said, ‘Please don’t be too nice,’" he said.

THE HAGUE/NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya’s deputy president appeared before the International Criminal Court on Tuesday charged with co-orchestrating a post-election bloodbath five years ago, a case that will test the stability of a country seen as vital to security in East Africa.

The trials of William Ruto and that of Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, which will start in November, have split public opinion, and witness testimonies of the violence in 2007-08 that killed more than a thousand people could stir tension.

The cases are also a major test for prosecutors at the decade-old Hague-based ICC, who have had a low success rate and face accusations of focusing on African countries, while avoiding war crimes in other global hotspots.Kenyatta, Ruto’s former rival who became a political ally, faces similar charges of crimes against humanity.

Rival members of Kenyatta’s Kikuyu and Ruto’s Kalenjin tribes, wielding machetes, knives, and bows and arrows, went on the rampage after a disputed 2007 election, butchering more 1,200 people and driving hundreds of thousands from their homes.

William Ruto was charged with crimes against his own people after the rioting in Kenya in 2007. This was after the election where he was Deputy President.

There is also leaked audio of William Ruto saying he almost slapped Uhuru Kenyatta who was the sitting president of Kenya at the time. Even during Ruto's run for president he made another threat towards a rival that was all over Twitter. Ruto seems to like to make threats of slapping people, one man went to Twiiter saying we heard you only slap your wide to Ruto.

William Ruto is also putting one of his 7 children into the political lime light. His daughter Charlene who has no political background what so ever, She has met with Morrocan leaders dressed in inappropriate clothing for the Muslim lead country. It was so inappropriate they made her place her coat over her shoulders but she's seen with her knees uncovered in photos because her dress is too short.

There has been more photos of her doing other political duties without any experience or reasoning.

Other photos were released then removed from social media of Charlene wearing inappropriate clothing to a political meeting. Kenyans said she appeared to be dressed for a night club.

The Kenyan government went on a photo shoot for the day trying to make the first daughter seem like she cares about the lives of young Kenyans. Even though it was one day of her just doing nothing important with children. Children that happened to attend a school where her father had them tear gassed prior.
