Ruto Storms Kakamega Bringing Businesses to a Standstill as Thousands of Residents Seek His Address

Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday attracted thousands of residents from Musalia Mudavadi's backyard in Kakamega County, Western Region who sought his address.

Ruto who had earlier gifted a pastoral car to Africa Church of Holy Spirit had an opportunity to popularize his UDA party, presidential bid ahead of the 2022 general elections.

In his speech, Ruto hit on the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga for advocating constitutional changes, reiterating his earlier sentiments that the BBI drive was illegal, and sought to add more posts for the sake of the top leaders.

Ruto went ahead to gift 400 women with Sh 3,000 each to boost their businesses, adding that if he wins in 2022, their businesses will be boosted by allocation from the national government.

The Second in Command further dismissed his critics stating that in 2007 he tirelessly campaigned for Raila Odinga, same as in 2013 and 2017 when he traversed the country for President Uhuru Kenyatta's campaigns adding that he will not be intimidated and will continue pushing for the hustler nation empowerment.

"They have now united to say that since my father is not known, I should not lead this country, no way. We will show them, next year," posed Ruto.
