The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Mucheru, has castigated Deputy President William Ruto’s wheelbarrow and hustler political narratives. According to the ICT Cabinet Secretary, the twofold narrative is only meant to deceive Kenyans into voting in land grabbers and corrupt leaders ahead of the coming general elections which is slated on August, 2022.

While delivering his speech during a press conference with NTV Kenya, CS Joe Mucheru stated that Kenya cannot afford to sway away from a digital dream and go backwards in technological advancement. The wheelbarrow narrative, according to the ICT CS, is a thing that has been overtaken with time and should therefore be rejected and not given a chance in the country.

“How can Ruto tell us to leave the digital world and embrace his wheelbarrows. The previous campaigns was coloured with a digital world from analog and now you take us back to the analog era. I want to urge Kenyans, especially the gullible youths to reject the wheelbarrow nonsense. Imagine a country full with the poor owning wheelbarrows all over, and the Head of State a rich business man calling himself a hustler. Please let's stop these jokes from the UDA political faction. Our goal is to digitize Kenya and uphold the current peace and unity,” ICT CS Joe Mucheru said.
