In his second day tour of the region, the second in command acknowledged greetings from residents of North and West Mugirango constituencies as he made stopovers at Nyamusi, Magwagwa, Ikonge, Ekerenyo and Kebiringo markets to disregard the trickle-down economic model which he claims has only served the interests of the privileged minority.
During his tour, Ruto preached the "transformative" Bottom-Up Economic Model that he claims will bring tangible life-changing results to Mama Mboga, BodaBoda, farmers, pastoralists, fishermen, among other millions of ordinary people in the country.
However, the question of whether the mammoth crowd that attended Ruto's rally in Nyamira did it out of willingness or or were paid has now emerged after a video showing some people getting paid surfaces online.
From the video seen by this writer, a group of people are seen scrambling as they get paid by a man dressed in UDA attire. One of the man protecting the person with cash is also heard trying to cool down the crowd so that they don't make noise.
