Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate and Deputy President William Ruto has pledged atleast 4000bob to every farmer in bid to increase the farmer's cow productivity.Picture for illustrative purpose.

While addressing Kenyans and his supporters from Kasarani auditorium in Nairobi County as he launched his much awaited manifesto, Ruto gave well calculated figures as his top ally and vocal blogger, Dennis Itumbi, captured in his social media hurdles.

"With a dairy herd estimated at 2.2 million lactating cows, an increase in average productivity by 0.5kg per cow translates to 400m kilograms of milk with a farm gate value of Sh16b at Sh40 per kg. We have estimated that provision of Sh4000 per cow, a total of Sh8.8b would be sufficient working capital for our dairy farmers." ~Dennis ItumbiPicture for illustrative purpose.

This attracted lots of reactions where different Kenyans gave different views and opinions as captured below. See screenshots attached.
