Bomet first governor Isaac Ruto has launched his 2022 manifesto, in a live Radio interview at Chamgei FM on Wednesday night. Ruto said he has a big vision for Bomet county and like his first term he will restore the the glory back.
Isaac Ruto said like his slogan of "Hustler Mashinani", his first priority is to tackle poverty head-on. He says that the lives of Bomet people had greatly improved during the first term because he localized procurement and tendering processes.
He said when he forms the next government he will employ at least 10 people from each village at the county government. The 10 will be monitored to ensure that they improve the livelihoods of their families. Ruto said the 10 should be from very poor backgrounds achieving the bottom-up approach preached by his friend deputy president William Ruto.
"My great ambition when I take over is to tackle poverty head-on. We were growing towards that from 2013 to 2016. Had it not been for the sabotage by the national government through MCA's, Bomet was going in the right direction. When I take over in 2022, I will employ at least 10 people from each village, the 10 will be monitored to ensure that they help their families and the community," Ruto said.
The CCM party leader added that his focus will be to improve farming through extension services, he will also connect farm inputs to outside markets.
He called off the current governor for mismanagement especially on the Longisa referral hospital and other facilities. He said hospital clothes should be thoroughly sterilized with machines to avoid contamination.
He promised to clean the mess left behind in his first term and the term of Hillary Barchok
"We grow wiser every day, and we are not perfect, we shall correct any messes that we left in the first term," Ruto said.
Ruto said his stand on William Ruto's presidency still stands and he will ensure that he clinches the presidency.
