"Your Excellency, kuna public demand wananchi wanataka uongee. Demand ni kubwa!" This was the statement by the Migori governor Hon Okoth Obado after he was destructed by a group of youths during a public rally in Awendo, Migori forcing him to cut short his speech. The latter who mainly hosted the deputy president Dr William Ruto in his Migori tour on Saturday was giving his speech, revealing why he had embraced the bottoms up economy.
According to Obado, the county would highly benefit under Ruto's economic approach since it would avail money to the 'common wananchi'. He also asked the residents of Migori to change course and support Dr William Ruto's bid for presidency in the general elections.
While he was still speaking, a group of youths lifted a banner written, 'Ruto the fifth president' as the celebrated and chanted the chief hustler. The chants intensified to a point that Obado was not able to speak, hence invited the deputy president to give his speech. According to the Migori boss, the expression by residents proved that the region had started boarding the UDA train.
In his speech, the deputy president reiterated the need to have a government that will prioritize the economic needs of the nation and not the needs of few individuals at the national level. According to him, all the other candidates had ganged up against him and were doing all it takes to beat him in 2022.
"Si mmeona wale wengine wameunda gang ya watu saba kwa sababu yangu. Lakini nataka kuwaambia hiyo gang yao ni ndogo kwa sababu mimi nimeunda gang na nyinyi mahustler wote. Ama namna gani my friends." the second in command said.
