According to DP Ruto's communication director Emmanuel Tallam the meeting is about discussing the economic situation of the region in line with his proposed bottom-up economic model.

The meeting, which is seen as part of the DP's efforts to enter the region, comes just three months after dozens of Nyanza leaders met with Ruto's team to draft an economic vision for the region that would be included in his manifesto.
