Deputy President William Ruto has been making several moves in a bid to keep strengthening his campaigns as he gears towards fighting it out for the country's presidential seat come 2022.
Among one the strategies that he has settled on as he seeks to entice Kenyans to his side is using the hustler narrative which focuses on a bottom-up approach.
In this approach, he aims to empower the small businesses which comprise on a majority of the entrepreneurs in the country to raise their income standards to a higher level.
On Tuesday, Ruto held a meeting with grassroot leaders which he announced was part of enhancing this economic model which is so dear to him.
"Met former councillors from Kajiado County to discuss bottom-up economic model; being grassroot leaders, they have a key role to play, Karen, Nairobi County. MPs Katoo ole Metito, George Sunkuyia, @HonJumwa and @kimaningunjiri attended," he stated.
Ruto further noted that in this approach, he aims to make it inclusive, expansive in order to give all Kenyans, especially those referred to as hustlers, a way of making more income thus improve their livelihoods.
Since President Uhuru Kenyatta banned all political and social gathering of a large magnitude to avoid the spread of coronavirus, DP Ruto has been using his Karen residence as the new location of operation.
He has been meeting various leaders from across the country as he aims at convincing them to support his presidential ambition and in turn spread the gospel to citizens in the grassroot.
