According to the DP, Odinga's promise of giving poor households Ksh 6000 is misplaced because Kenyans don't need "handouts", they need jobs.
" These people don't need handouts, they need jobs," Ruto took a swipe at Raila while at the coast.
Ruto has been on the receiving end for allegedly giving youths handouts during his tours across the country, but the DP has insisted his gestures are "empowerment" not handouts.
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen is among Ruto's allies who have dismissed Raila's promise to the youths, saying young people have decided to form their government through Hustler Nation.
"Raila Odinga is promising 4 Cabinet slots and KShs 6000 to the youth in the government of his age mates&tycoons Mount Kenya Foundation elders BUT the youth have rejected tokenism and are forming their own government through the Hustler Nation."~ Murkomen
