William Ruto, the deputy president, adopted Nadia as one of his own and gave her the name Cherono in honor of his mother.
Nadia was just a day old when she was born and later interred in Machakos.
The DP said he was touched by the girl’s story after she was abandoned but later rescued by nuns who took her to Ippolita Children’s Home five years ago.
“I was deeply moved by the story of Nadia, who was found buried, her body mostly decomposing, and abandoned as a newborn and has been cared for by nuns at Madre Ippolata Children’s Home. I gave her the name Cherono in honor of my mother and adopted her into my family, he declared.
Many Kenyans were touched when they heard the story on Nadia Cherono, DP William Ruto’s adopted daughter.
Looking at the photos, Nadia is growing healthily and cheerful.
She is one of the six children in the family who include Nick Ruto, June Ruto, Stephanie Ruto Charlene Chelagat Ruto and George Kimutai Ruto.
Recently, during the General elections, Nadia accompanied Ruto to the Bomas of Kenya where he was declared the president elect.
Ruto’s wife walked behind him and looked dazzling as she held hands with her.
They wore matching white and yellow outfits, with the young one having simple school lines to complement her awesome look.
Rachel had a yellow necklace and earrings with her hair in a cute afro and smiled proudly.
Ruto’s wife has been a great help and a contribution to his campaign as she mobilized women to vote for her husband.
Here are some of the photos of the all grown up girl sharing a light moment with her father William Ruto:
