His Excellency the Deputy President of Kenya, Dr William Ruto has today lost his cool during a meeting with grassroot people at his Karen residence, Nairobi County and badly attacked the former prime minister, Raila Odinga as well as the Head of State, President Uhuru Kenyatta.
A few days ago, Raila Odinga deconstructed the bottom-up economic model that's being championed by the Chief of Hustler Nation, Hon. William Ruto to the extent of referring to it as 'taka taka'. The deputy president has now fired back clearing the air over Raila's words against his model's agendas.

He has now said that supporting people who are at the bottom of the wealth pyramid like the boda boda riders, small scale business people including those who sell vegetables among other small supplements is what will help in uplifting them to the middle or upper social classes. With that, he told Raila not to deceive Kenyans with promises of white collar jobs which can be hardly offered.
In addition, Ruto also told both president Kenyatta and Raila not to degrade his agenda of building the livelihoods of the ordinary Kenyans by calling it names. Ruto now wants to be left on his own as he makes claims of being disrespected by the two entities.
