Ruto and his allies have been popularizing the ideology, saying that the plan is to ensure that the poor fully benefit and are equated to the others under his government if he wins the presidency in 2022.
Ahmednasir on Monday suggested that he believes in the ideology, terming it the solution to the nation's problems and the only route that will bring all Kenyans, regardless of their religion and tribes, together.
"Let us build a better Kenya, a big tent that shelters all of us regardless of one's religion or ethnicity. And the HUSTLER NATION has all in mind, ALL!" said the controversial city lawyer in a tweet.
This was a response to an tweet from law professor Makau Mutua, who had mocked Ruto for hiding behind the narrative and practicing tribal and regional politics.
Mutua had wondered why Ruto has been meeting regional leaders if he indeed is playing national politics, telling Ahmednasir to lead his Somali tribe to meet him like the others.
"GEMA leaders will give DP William Ruto a list of ECONOMIC demands. The Kalenjin vow to do the same. A GREAT start for HUSTLER “national” politics. I wonder when Ahmednasir will lead the Somali to the DP to beg for their own breadcrumbs," he said.
Despite having initially represented President Uhuru Kenyatta in court during the 2017 presidential election petitions, Ahmednasir has been making pro-Ruto tweets, indicating that he has left Uhuru's side.
His remark comes only weeks after his colleague, lawyer Cliff Ombeta, announced joining Ruto's UDA party, the party on whose ticket he (Ruto) is likely to seek the presidency come 2022.
