Fearless Kalonzo Musyoka Spells Doom on DP Ruto's Bottom up Economic Model

Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has slammed Deputy President William Ruto's Bottom-Up economic strategy, calling it "handout economics" with the goal of providing a short fix rather than a long-term economic model that would move the country forward.

Speaking at the funeral of his former driver and his wife in Mwingi, Kalonzo claimed Ruto's approach is a route to poverty and warned Kenyans, particularly youngsters, from supporting it.

Kalonzo, the Wiper Democratic Movement Party Leader, questioned Ruto's wealth and challenged him to explain to Kenyans where he gets all of his money.

He claimed that the DP's state salary is roughly Sh1.2 million, but that the last time he was in Kitui, he gave around Sh10 million.

Ruto, on the other hand, has previously stated that he earns Sh1.5 million each day from his Koitalel poultry farm. 200,000 chickens live on the farm.

He also holds 400,000 shares of Safaricom, as well as 8,000 shares of Kenya Airways.
