What Raila Said About Hustler Movement While in Naivasha as State House Race Gathers Momentum

Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga on Monday took a swipe at his fierce rival Deputy President Dr. William Samoei Ruto while meeting a section of governors allied to the Azimio la Umoja movement.

While addressing a press conference, the former Prime Minister accused Dp Ruto of dividing Kenyans into social classes, the rich and the poor. He added that in any society there must be the rich, who owns the means of production, and the workers who work for the rich.

"Someone is agitating for a class war, the rich and the hustlers, in every society, there must be capital owners, those who will be owning means of production and those who are employed, you do not deprive the rich so that you can enrich the poor, you create opportunities for the poor to become rich," Raila said.

His rival DP Ruto has been using the hustler movement narrative to mobilize his support base ahead of the upcoming polls. Ruto has vowed to lift the economic status of the low earnings Kenyans who survive through hand to mouth.

The veteran politician also assured his followers that the Azimio la Umoja movement is very firm and urged more Kenyans to come out in large numbers to register as voters.
