Bodaboda Riders Splashed With Goodies as Ruto's Motorcade Makes a Surprise Stopover by the Roadside

Bodaboda riders in Kabati, Kitui county could not believe their eyes after the deputy president made a surprise and unexpected stopover by the roadside on Friday morning. The second in command was accompanied by a group of Ukambani leaders who had earlier escorted him in a women empowerment programme in the same area.

Huge crowds gathered on the roadside to cheer on the leaders. After traveling for a few kilometers, the motorcade came across a group of Bodaboda operators who were part of the cheering crowd.

Unexpectedly, the whole entourage stopped and Ruto went ahead to have a word with this group. The presidential hopeful said that the riders play a key role in the growth of the economy. He then gifted the group with a million shillings to help them grow.

The riders promised to support the deputy president in his quest to be the next head of State in 2022 after the retirement of president Uhuru Kenyatta. They also vowed to join UDA party ahead of the next polls.

The deputy president is known of giving out huge amounts of money whenever he goes for a visit. His critics have been questioning his source of wealth.

William Ruto has been insisting that the next government will be formed by the hustlers. He has been advocating for the bottom up economic model which focuses on empowering the citizens at the bottom of the pyramid.
