A Fish Vendor Leaves Ruto And Gachagua Smiling Over This During Hustler Fund Launch

On Wednesday, the hustler fund was officially launched by the president of the Republic of Kenya, William Samoei Ruto, along with his deputy, Rigathi Gachagwa, and the main cabinet secretary, Musalia Mudavadi.

Businessmen in charge of various small and medium-sized businesses attended the event in Greenpark Nairobi.

Susan, a seafood vendor in Nairobi, was one of the attendees.

The woman addressed the crowd, unable to contain her happiness at finally seeing the president and his deputy, Rigathi Gachagua.

She claimed that because of their many similarities, she had been dying to meet the president in person.

Imenishinda Mimi nina furaha ata kuongea. Kweli Mungu ni mwema, Nilikuwa natamani nione President Ruto na macho. Fish vendor Susan

She described how she began her tiny business with just KSH 150, buying only three fish, selling two of them for KSH 100 each, and keeping the third for herself.

Ruto laughed as she compared her experience to that of the head of state who used to sell chicken, as seen in the pictures below.

Susan had to take a break from speaking so she could turn her fish that was frying in a pan.
