Lap of luxury doesn’t beging to describe the new mansion of Deputy President William Ruto.
Details have emerged of a Ksh 50m home that is set to be refurbished for Ruto a.k.a the hustler.
The government is in a bid to refurbish DP Ruto’s Mombasa-based second home at a cost of Sh46.5 million.
This is a far cry from the shack he used to live in.
Below is the ‘cheap-looking’ house where the Deputy President used to live in as a true hustler. This was way before the big mullah checked in.
Cost details on refurbishing the home come days after it was revealed that taxpayers will pay Sh50 million to build a second office in Mombasa for the second most powerful man in the country.
During official working tours to the Coast, Mr Ruto is expected to put up at the new residence as opposed to staying at beach hotels like has been the case in the past, while President Uhuru Kenyatta spends time at State House in Mombasa.
Moving on, Ruto’s Sh450 million residence has spacious bedrooms, an office block, garage, swimming pool, gazebo, generator house, staff residence and a comptroller’s unit.
Here is an outside view of the palatial residence.
