Through his social media handles @Williamsruto, he stated, 'It is the ECONOMY.Trickle down FAILED for aiding patronage & cronyism, breeding cartels & monopolies that benefits FEW.Bottom up is anchored on DELIBERATELY promoting INVESTMENTS & FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS targeting the MILLIONS who are unemployed,hustler enterprises/farmer groups.'
