Deputy President William Ruto’s daughter, Abby Cherop has joined the prestigious Alliance Girls High School after she scored high marks in the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination.
Abby, who was sired out of the wedlock, enrolled in the top-performing school on Monday, January 13th, according to Tuko News.
Abby was among the 9,770 candidates who scored more than 400 marks in the examination whose results were released in November last year. After the release of the results, Abby's mother, Prisca Chemutai Bett announced on her Facebook page that her daughter scored 406 marks out of possible 500 marks.
"God you are Ebenezer, you Grace is sufficient! 406 it is...Glory to God," she wrote.
Abby came to the limelight in early 2017 after her mother sued DP Ruto for child maintenance for their daughter who was then aged 11. At the time, Ruto came out to publicly admit to siring the girl in 2006 and dismissed her mother’s allegations that he had avoided his parental obligations.
"My 11-year-old child Abby is well catered for including her education in a private boarding school. Politicians & Busybodies should keep off,” Ruto said on social media.
He added: “For the record, I did find Abby's mother a 90k-a-month job, 40k monthly upkeep ever since. She went ahead to get her own 3 other kids though. The other father/s should be men enough and look after their kids. Trying blackmail for me to cater for other men's children won't work."
Ruto allegedly met Bett in 2005 when she was a student at Moi University. At the time, Ruto was the Member of Parliament for Eldoret North Constituency.
