Kenyans React After Zambia Newly Elected President Says This About Wheelbarrows

Newly elected Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema has attracted a reaction from a section of Kenyans after his remarks about Wheelbarrows, an empowerment tool that Deputy President William Ruto has been providing to the Youth as he tries to solve the unemployment crisis in the country.

A video has surfaced of Hichilema making reference to what he has referred to as the Wheelbarrow economics which has been met by a strong reaction from concerned Kenyans who have not been afraid to share their feelings.

While addressing citizens on how he plans to address the crisis facing his country in terms of jobs, Hakainde has claimed that Wheelbarrow jobs are not real jobs and promised to provide a better solution to this problem.

The President was critical of the previous regime for failing to provide jobs to the youth who are the biggest population in the county.

"There are no jobs. I am talking of real jobs, I am not talking of pushing wheelbarrows to move garbage at the street corner," the head of state stated.

Even though Hakainde could have been unaware of this campaign strategy being used by Deputy President William Ruto, Kenyans took to their social media handles to share their thoughts.

"Unfortunately that propaganda is never working, Ruto support base keeps on adding up with his bottom-up economic model," a supporter opined.

"I think Kenya's affairs are totally different from that of Zambia. Mind your own business and leave us alone," stated one of Ruto's supporters.

"Ruto is just shaming us with this idea. It's the reason why he at 8 a.m. will at Sugoi crying," noted one the non-supporters of Ruto.
