Deputy President William Ruto son Nick Ruto has responded to concerns raised by some Kenyans about a video doing rounds social media where a man is captured putting a necklace on him.
In what many suggested that he is gay, Ruto dismissed the allegations simply saying that the necklace was a gift from his friend.
“This will help you understand the value of friendship and comprehend that gifting a friend of same or opposite gender does not amount to sexual/erotic relationship”.Ruto wrote.
In the clip that has since gone viral, a man of Indian origin is seen taking the necklace and putting it around his neck as people who are witnessing cheer them up.
The events captured in the video attracted a number of reactions from Kenyans with some suggesting that Nick was embracing gay activities in the country.
Before the birthday, the Deputy President’s son had posted on his Facebook about the event saying that he was growing strong and very wise each new day and that to him turning 30 was also sweet.
The event took place at an unknown location but the place was well decorated. Fireworks are also seen in the sky as those seated at the event celebrate and shout in joy.
The video had caused an uproar with Kenyans judging that the man who was giving Nick the necklace was his lover.
