Deputy President William Ruto has for the past couple of months been drumming up support for his hustler tag and the Bottom-up economic model stating that it is the only way the economy of the country will be revived.
Despite receiving a lot of criticism from his rivals, Ruto has challenged the other aspirants to bring on board their own ways of reviving the economy rather than pointing fingers to his blueprint.
Speaking with TV 47 on Monday evening, 2017 presidential aspirant Doctor Japheth Kaluyu argued that Ruto's slogan for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party 'Kazi Ni Kazi' is a fiction that will not work in Kenya.
"Kazi Si Kazi,' Ruto does not understand that most Kenyans are working poor. Even though they are working, they cannot afford to attend to all their needs. The taxes are very high, the leaders should be talking of how to lower taxes, they have even shifted their discussions from corruption to the hustlers. Some issues such as corruption need to be faced head on," posed Kaluyu.
He went n to state that he will be on the ballot in 2022.
