Deputy President William Ruto's son, Nick was the talk of the town on Sunday. 

This is after a video of him receiving a gift from a male friend went viral. 

In the video, Nick was seated at a dinner table, when his 'mzungu' friend put a golden chain on his neck. 

This video sparked reports that the Deputy President's son is gay. 

In a Facebook post, Nick responded to the claims, asking Kenyans to understand the value of friendship. 

He wrote;

"Build your circle and celebrate each other. If you can, gift your friends the best you can on their special occasions like Birthdays, Anniversaries, weddings e.t.c.

This will help you understand the value of friendship and comprehend that gifting a friend of the same or Opposite gender does NOT amount to a sexual/erotic relationship. Thank you all for your Birthday wishes and gifts."
