Deputy President William Rut took his bottom up campaign to kitui county with a declaration that he is the presidential candidate who best understands the plight of the youth.
Dr Ruto said the 2022 General Election race will pit those pushing for economic reforms to address the country’s unemployment crisis against those seeking constitutional reforms to create positions of power for a few individuals.
He urged the youth to seize the moment and determine their future by electing him President, saying he is closer to them in age than his political rival Raila Odinga, leader of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).
He said his opponents have failed to offer an alternative to his bottom-up economic development model that seeks to uplift those at the base of the wealth python.
Dr Ruto further urged Kenyans to carefully evaluate leaders' policies, and rally behind those with solid economic plans to transform their lives.
He spoke in Kabati, Kitui town and Migwani market, where he led several women empowerment programmes targeting more than 20,000 beneficiaries in the County.
The Deputy President was accompanied by MPs Nimrod Mbai, Victor Munyaka, Kimani Ichung’wah, former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama and former Nairobi Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke.
