Mpasho recently interviewed comedian, Vincent Mwasia Mutua known by most Kenyans as Chipukeezy.

One of the things that he spoke about was the great relationship he has with the incoming president William Ruto.

During our conversation, Chipu disclosed a secret most Kenyans weren't aware of concerning the type of influence that the Sugoi-born Ruto has on him.

He explained that weren't it for the Azimio leader, that he (Chipukeezy) would have run for a parliamentary seat at the just concluded general elections.

"If it weren't for him, I would have vied for a political seat but he told me to hold. I was supposed to run for MP Matungulu but he told me to wait, not to get into politics."

"What was Ruto's reason?" Mpasho asked.

"That this thing that I do called usanii has a lot of potential during his campaign and even in his government. He was really encouraging me to enter politics not because I am famous but because I have a purpose."

We also asked the funnyman what he admired about Kenya's incoming fifth head of state? Chipu waxed lyrical about Mr. Ruto calling him his hero while also praising his work ethic.

"William Ruto is my hero. He's a person who grew up from the village. I admired...I know what I have gone through to be where I am.

But one thing that I have learnt from him is that nothing comes easy. I you want to be a husband tomorrow, you have to plan from today. His work ethic...he's so on point."

He finished by by praising Mr. Ruto's humble nature saying that the incoming Commander-In-Chief 'hananga udosi ama ukubwa mingi as many people percieve.'
