Kibor has been in the limelight for all the wrong reasons after divorcing his first two wives in recent years.
The old man, in court papers, accused his wives of cruelty and denying him conjugal rights.
He also threatened his sons with a gun over a land row as the old man accused them of trying to take his property.
Away from that, Kibor is a respectable elder having served as a Councillor within Uasin Gishu in the Moi era.
He was a close ally to the late President Daniel Arap Moi.
He once recounted a Fallout with Moi which affected his businesses.
By visiting Kibor, Ruto could be reaching out to senior Kalenjin Elders to seek to their wisdom as his Fallout with President Uhuru Kenyatta reaches feverpitch.
