The land where the house sits is part of 700-acre farm owned by the Deputy President. He has however denied building a country home at the cost of Sh1.2 Billion.

"I would be daft to take Sh1.2 billion to a village to build a house in which I will stay for a week a year. That story is ridiculous," Ruto stated in a past interview.
