DP Ruto Crafts an Intelligent Way of Countering Raila's Ksh6000 a Month Promise While in Mombasa

Kenyans will head to the polls to elect their new leaders next year in August. These leaders will occupy different elective posts for the next five years. The majority of aspirants have already begun early campaigns, moving from one part of the country to another in a bid to popularize themselves to the Kenyan voters.

However, big attention will be focused on the presidential election race that has attracted different aspirants. The Deputy President Dr. William Ruto and the ODM leader Raila Amolo Odinga are some of the key leaders who are the favorites to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta next year in August.

The two bitter rivals have turned their attention to the Kenyan youths who constitute the majority of votes. ODM leader Raila Odinga has held different consultative meetings with the youths, especially in the Mt Kenya region. Furthermore, he has promised to appoint the youths in his Cabinet and form a ministry that will address all predicaments facing the youths.

Also, the former Prime Minister promised to award Ksh 6000 to the youths once he is elected as the president next year. This will cushion them from the harsh economic conditions experienced in the country.

While speaking in Mombasa County, the Deputy President has promised that he will cushion the youths from being blacklisted in the CRB once he is elected in office. The second in command said that due to the tough economic situation, the youths and the common citizen has been harassed by shylocks and other money lending agencies such as Fuliza with the majority of them being blacklisted in the CRB.

He said he will stick with Kenyans to ensure that no one is blacklisted once he assumes office.

The move is seen as one way of countering ODM leader Ksh 6000 model which seems so attractive to the youths and other Kenyans. With the majority of Kenyans surviving on loans and hand-to-mouth systems, cushioning them against CRB may also be another way of winning their hearts just like the Ksh 6000 model.
