George is President Ruto’s youngest son. He holds an undergraduate degree in computer science from Strathmore University. He is currently pursuing a course in aviation.

He has five siblings, one brother and four sister. His eldest brother, Nick Ruto, 35, is a lawyer by profession.

Little is known of George’s professional career, however, reports indicate that the young Ruto is currently enrolled in college where he is pursuing a course in aviation. He also holds a computer science degree but there is no public record of his practice in this field.

Grooming & Style

Being the president’s son, George is as well dressed as they come. During his father’s inauguration, the two donned matching outfits, adding to their uncanny resemblance. However, while the head of state prefers a clean shave, George wears an afro.

In a video that has since gone viral, President Ruto could be heard lecturing his son on the choice of his hairstyle, but George was quick to defend his look, explaining to his father that afros are a style preferred by the younger generation.

He first became an internet sensation when he accompanied his father during a visit to Uganda in 2018. Images of George recently went viral with women thirsting over the young Ruto.
