Why Ruto Hit Out At Uhuru's Gun Factory But Praised Ngilu's Garment Firm In Kitui.

The deputy president William Ruto who is vying for presidency on United Democratic Alliance party (UDA) has hit out at the country's small arms factory in Ruiru saying that it doesn't make economic sense.

In making his point while launching his manifesto at Kasarani, Ruto said the factory only created 100 jobs with the government having invested KSH 4billion.

He said it would have been better to build a garment factory that cost less and employ more.

He juxtaposed the guns Factory with one made by Kitui government at a cost of KSH 168 million but created 600 jobs which translates to KSH 280000 per job.

"In the same country, the County Government of Kitui established a garment factory with a capacity for 600 jobs at a cost of Ksh.168 million, Ksh.280,000 per job. The Ksh.4 billion gun factory investment is the equivalent of 24 Kitui garment factories and 14,000 jobs."

The DP is vouching for micro and medium Sized enterprises to create more jobs to curb the unemployment crisis currently facing the country.

Do you think the DP will sort out the unemployment crisis I'm the country? Feel free to share your thoughts and comments on this on our comments platform.
