Bunge La Wananchi President Calvin Okoth Ask Ruto to Bring Back Kazi Mtaani to Lower Current Crime

The Kaazi mtaani initiative was started by former president Uhuru Kenyatta to help low-income earners, especially urban adolescents. The program must be reinstated within one month, according to President William Ruto.

Calvin Okoth Gaucho, the president of Bunge La Wananchi, accused Ruto of hypocrisy while speaking to the media, claiming that while running for office, Ruto had bragged about being the country's top hustler, but that once in office, he had eliminated the program that had given many people a source of income.

Gaucho argued that the initiative's suspension is to blame for the country's rising insecurity, notably in Nairobi City, and requested that the president revive the initiative within a month.

He claimed that the adolescents' financial situation forced them to engage in robberies and pickpocketing, which served as justification for their actions. He claims that all they are looking for is food and shelter.
