Deputy President William Ruto on Thursday led his Kenya Kwanza Alliance brigade for an economic forum in Nakuru County, where they will be expected to listen to the grievances of traders and professionals from the county, on what they would want the Kenya Kwanza Alliance government to do in case they win the August presidential race.
In what excited the residents to an extend they broke in to cheers during Ruto's opening remarks, the UDA party leader stated that the team will have good three hours to listen to them, and also urged the residents to 'stop following the protocol,' and instead state what challenges they have gone through and how they want to be assisted.
He also urged the political leaders to put politics aside and take note of the issues the residents would be raising through out the meeting.
This is the first visit to the county days after he unveiled Mathira member of parliament Rigathi Gachagua as his running mate.
The KKA team had earlier held similar economic forums in different counties of the Western Region few weeks ago, with insiders saying the issues will be incorporated in the Kenya Kwanza's manifesto.
After today's forum, they will met the people before going to Nyandarua County for the same exercise.
