Mama Ida is a woman celebrated for her grace and talent in leadership. She has championed for a host of causes – many focused on women, children and health in Kenya.
Deputy President William Ruto’s wife, Rachel, graduated from Kenyatta University with a Bachelor’s degree in Education in the 1990s.
Rachel gave up her teaching career to be a stay-at-home mother after getting married to the now deputy president.
A humble Rachel has been at the forefront in advocating for women empowerment – a cause she has dutifully taken up to create more favourable opportunities for women.
On January 17, 2014, Mrs Ruto was awarded the International Honorary Fellowship Award on Women Empowerment at the Binary University in Malysia.
