The deputy president William Ruto under his bottom-up economics has been using wheelbarrow as his slogan on his struggle to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022. For this reason, him alongside his pointmen have been visiting several parts of the countries donating wheelbarrows to the people under hustler nation as a form of empowerment to make them economically independent.
This has led to a lot of mixed reactions with people claiming that they do not actually practice whatever they preach to the people.
On their way to Ukambani on Saturday 24th July 2021, Ruto's top allies, former Kakamega county senator Boni Khalwale and Machakos counterpart Johnston Muthama found themselves in a hot soup after sharing a photo of themselves riding in a chopper.
This angered Kenyans who questioned why the two leaders could not ride in a wheelbarrow they normally distribute to them in the name of empowering hustlers. Here are some of the reactions from Kenyans.
"I thought you would be riding in a wheelbarrow," Douglas Nyandoro.
"Real hustlers riding in a chopper, Kenyans let's be careful," Stephen Ochieng.
"Why not use private cars that would cost Ksh 10,000 then use the money saved to purchase more wheelbarrows for hustlers in Kitui," Bob Njagi.
"Hi hustlers, why do you think we are fools? Why can't you use your party symbol as a means of transport," Munjiri.
