Deputy President William Ruto has for a long time now identified himself as a hustler meaning someone who has very little and fights the odds to earn a living. This has earned a lot of popularity and support as people love his attitude towards the low income earners in the society.
On Wednesday, Ruto was in Tharaka Nithi county for an economic forum where he met with small business owners including Bodaboda Riders. While he was addressing them, Ruto said something that has made the people love him more. He promised the riders that when he clings the presidential seat in August, he will introduce electric motorcycles to beat the high cost of fuel that has negatively affected the transport sector. His statement excited Bodaboda riders who then promised to support him to the top seat.
"Second, we will start manufacturing motorcycles which don't use petrol. They will be using electricity. You will be charging at night and in the morning you carry out your business and charge it at night." Ruto said.
