Currently, the deputy president Hon William Ruto is touring all corners of our country trying to convince the Kenyans that he is capable of running the top seat. While Hon Uhuru Kenyatta and his friend Hon Raila Odinga are busy drumming up for Support of the BBI report, the deputy president is preaching against the same and empowering youths and women. Hustler nation is known for its political strategy of giving out wheelbarrows. Ruto has been claiming that the Building Bridges Initiative report is a tool for the waste of time and public resources. Kenyan’s have reacted differently to Ruto’s idea of distributing wheelbarrows and rakes to small-scale traders.
Dp has been claiming that through this, we can get a solution to the current economic crises we are facing in Kenya. While the government is investigating much on the big industry and organizations, Ruto is claiming to invest from the bottom- up. Through the idea of empowering the small-scale traders, the deputy president says that revenue will be raised from the bottom where first the low-class Kenyans are benefiting then the benefits can reach the rest later. Youths from the central part of Kenya have got a negative reaction regarding the distribution of wheelbarrows.
They have raised some questions as to why the Tangatanga politicians are not moving around in their wheelbarrows they are claiming to solve economic crises but in choppers and V8s. In a certain meeting in central Kenya, Kimani Ichungwa was asked to explain the same but he could not. The youths are not begging to call this hustler narratives a scam since the guys giving out wheelbarrows to the poor are moving around inexpensive vehicles and choppers.
The youths added that the hustler should change their slogan from hustlers to dynasties. Ruto claims that he was raised in a poor family where the only income was from selling chicken and eggs. Raila fired back Ruto’s remarks saying that Jomo Kenyatta and Mwai Kibaki were poor and they didn’t call themselves hustlers.
