Ruto Promises Ksh5,000-Rent-to Own Houses for the Youth

Deputy President William Ruto offered to build rent-to-own properties so young people might become landowners for as cheap as Ksh5,000.

"We'll work with builders to provide affordable homes for young people. So, renters who pay between Ksh5,000 and Ksh10,000 will get a mortgage."After 10 to 15 years, the house will be under your name because we want the young to own houses," Ruto said.

The DP said it was time to stop limiting house ownership to the elderly and wealthy. He promised to make jua kali a manufacturing hub.

The UDA presidential candidate was joined by Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua, who urged people to vote against Raila Odinga on August 9.

Gachagua promised the rally's security detail that the Ruto administration will handle their demands. He said cops should be nice to the public in return."We want to boost their pay and benefits so they can go to school, graduate, and find work. While we raise their compensation, they should let individuals freely do business, he said.

"We ensure that if a police officer discovers you at night, they transport you. The MP said, "They should take you home, not the station."

Ruto's backers minimized Odinga's election approval by the IEBC (IEBC). They promised the former premier a 60-day political fight.The DP urged the IEBC on June 4 to guarantee a free, fair, and verifiable election. He advised his fans to avoid unneeded sideshows.
