Deputy President William Ruto has been in his vote hunting escapade in the county of Mombasa over the weekend. The Dp has been traversing the country drumming support for his hustler nation narrative.
This past week, DP Ruto has been in some of the major coastal counties such as Kwale, Kilifi and Taita counties. This is to wrestle out Raila Odinga support from the region. Odinga has been enjoying immense support from the coastal region in the past elections.
Ruto has been received by huge crowds particularly in the Kenyan coastal cities which were initially seen as bedrooms to ODM leader Raila Odinga. Many have embraced DP's hustler narrative from these coastal cities.
Whenever Ruto takes to the podium to speak, chants of 'Ruto' 'wheelbarrow' can be heard from the charged crowds. Particularly today in Changamwe, Mombasa Ruto asked the crowd whether they want an improvement in the economy or the changing of the constitution. "Mnataka tubadilishe uchumi ama tubadilishe katiba?" Ruto asked the excited crowd.
This was a direct attack on ODM members and the kieleweke chiefs who were after the changes in the 2010 constitution. Their efforts did not come to fruition since the High court put an end to the document.
