DP Ruto's Evening Message After Leaving Lamu Sparks Mixed Reactions Among Kenyans

Deputy president William Ruto was in various localities of the expansive Lamu county for the better part of the day where he continued to market the Hustler nation movement as he prepares to lock horns with Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga come next year.

And hours after leaving Lamu, the deputy president took to social media to outline that his current efforts to empower various groups as he makes forays in various parts of the country is aimed at lifting many kenyans out of the poverty bracket.

He argued that the economic empowerment model that he has adopted is centred around the people, suggesting that it is the same efforts that he had taken to Lamu county today during his empowerment tours.

However, his statement courted controversy with a good number of kenyans not only poking holes into it but dissecting the various issues of interest to the country's political situation.

Nick: In these empowerment meetings, do you give the people money or you just give them a "motivation talk?"

Erick: Our love for you is overwhelming everyday, but pia Sir stop calling president uhuru Kenyatta tapeli we know this man is not good but just respect him and always speak good of him we love and our support is for you mpaka debe.

Njenga: Here comes the season whereby they can even opt to walk barefoot just to get our votes.
