"Hotel and boardroom meetings shall not bear fruits in the next presidential race. The decision on the leadership of Kenya shall be made by millions of Kenyans comprising millions of unemployed youth, poor women who toil to put food on their tables," said Deputy President.
Ruto added that when he will be in government he will revive the economy through the bottom up model. The bottom up which he said entails empowering the common citizen.
Ruto added that he will allocate more funds to various sectors in order to improve the lives of the citizens.
“Many Kenyans are not able to borrow loans because they have been listed as defaulters on the Credit Reference Bureau by online financial lending firms. But from next year, we shall allocate Sh 50 billion to agriculture, Sh 50 billion to give loans to small scale traders to boost their businesses and additional Sh100 billion on projects that will generate jobs for the youth in the government budget," he said.
Ruto challenged his competitors not to hang around President Kenyatta waiting for endorsement. Instead he urged them to prepare well and meet him in the ballot.
“Let them stop surrounding the President and let him serve the 45 million Kenyans. Let them identify a presidential candidate, come up with an agenda and a strategy like we in UDA who have a candidate in the name of William Ruto, bottom up economic model as our agenda and a strategy to unite all Kenyans and empower them," he said.
