The DP has been traversing the country, identifying regions which would play a vital role as he plots to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta who retires in 2022.

For the past few weeks, Ruto's son Nick has been holding activities across the country which mainly target the youth, the population which plays key roles in polls.

Last week, Mr Nick Ruto was in Siaya County, a stronghold of ODM leader Raila Odinga, where he participated in various fundraisers targeting the youth.

Over the weekend, Nick visited Mombasa, another county which has predominantly voted for Odinga in previous elections, where he was invited by community leader Mohamed Hassan.

"This is the right thing. Instead of youths engaging in drugs and other illicit substances, sports play a fundamental role in reshaping their lives. I have talked to Mohammed and he has explained to me how these activities help. I am told one youth is now earning income for participating in sports.

"I request Kenyan youths to join such activities. These are events which can uplift them. The government should come out, speak to these youths and help them make progress in life," the young Ruto said.

An insider, who spoke in confidence given that he's not authorized to speak on behalf of Ruto's campaign, said that the eldest son of the DP is a key player in the campaign team.

"He is involved in all activities involving the father's campaigns. In fact, he closely works with organisers and his father trusts him so much," he said.

Nick Ruto graduated from Kenya School of Law in February and was subsequently admitted to the bar. He's said to be learning along his father's legal team.

Although he's yet to declare ambitions for any political seat, chances are that he will join political contests in future. Dr Ruto himself joined politics at a tender age and was elected to Parliament in 1997.
