Kenyans slam Ruto's top ally for his comments on Raila's 6k promise to vulnerable families

The economic model battle has intensified, particularly between the two leading presidential candidates, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and Deputy President William, ahead of the 2022 election.

Raila Odinga's plan to give poor families Ksh 6,000 per month, according to Tharaka Nithi senator Kithure Kindiki, who is one of the deputy president's top allies, is unrealistic.

He went on to say that the strategy is simply encouraging a culture of handouts and reliance, and that Ruto's proposal of providing Ksh 100 million each seat is the greatest option for the country.

The majority of Kenyans disagreed with his remarks, claiming that Raila's concept of providing poor Kenyans $6,000 per month is the greatest because the money will go straight into their pockets, as opposed to Ruto's, which will go through MPs.

"As is customary, the money will end up in the pockets of a select few at the top and those in charge of the finances," Freddie Gregor said.

Some Kenyans also informed him that since he has been the deputy president for two terms, William Ruto has had the opportunity to put what he is now promising Kenyans into action.
