To keep a pledge, President Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto is working. For Kenyans, the president vowed to launch the hustlers fund. The hustlers fund was initially said to be interest-free, but the government later revealed that there would be 8% interest, shocking Kenyans.
However, the president has received criticism and disgrace for his decision to launch the Hustler Funds. Hon. Peter Salasya, a member of parliament for Mumias East Constituency, reportedly claimed that although President William Samoei Arap Ruto wants to bring the Hustlers Fund, many undergraduate students in universities and colleges are unable to take their exams because of fees. According to him, the government must make it a priority to make sure hustlers attend school first.
"Hustlers have to attend school. Due to costs, many first-year students in universities and colleges are unable to take their exams. There are numerous kids from low-income homes there. When they are unable to attend school, you want to bring hustler funds. Before we discuss hustler money, we need cdf." Parliamentary candidate for Mumias East, Hon. Peter Salasya, tweeted
