The Tangatanga chief was accompanied by United Democratic Alliance (UDA) allied legislators (former Machakos senator Hon Johnson Muthama, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wah among others) for a critical event of women empowerment in Kitu Central where he was hosted by MP aspirant Hon Ben Muasya Mutiso. Through an injection of financial aid to more than 100 women groups in Kitui, DP Ruto offered Ksh1M that seeks to benefit over 5,000 members.
He informed that the Hustler Nation government will address major bottlenecking challenges facing small scale business owners and local traders such high taxation, unfavourable working conditions, lack of capital to start a business among others factors hindering the prosperity of ordinary Kenyans' businesses ventures.
Ruto hinted on implementing plans in Hustler government that will also give possible solutions to the increasing high rate of unemployment among the youths across the country. He faulted the BBI partners for spearheading Constitutional Amendment agenda instead of tackling the puzzle of unemployment.
"I want to ask you the great people of Kitui, you have a problem with constitutional changes that stages top positions for some few individuals in the government or your problem is the ailing country's economy?" He asked.
After having a candid engagement with thousands of women in Kitui central, he later headed to Migwani where he is expected to gear up his another empowerment program to thousands of locals. However, his speeding convoy was blocked by the excited crowd of hustlers at Kitui market where they demanded him to address. With no alternative left, DP Ruto was forced to hold an impromptu stopover at the market and offered Ksh1M to Bodaboda riders at the market.
