Kenyan politics has its own share of drama when the election period approaches. News about William Ruto and Raila have been hitting the headlines over the past few days.
“Am I not the one who ensured that Raila became prime minister and risked going to Hague? I also made sure that Uhuru became president, Maraga brought trouble but I also ensured that he became president. After doing all that, they have now started calling me names. When I supported Raila Odinga they said I was good, when supported Uhuru, they also said am good. Today, I want to stand for the rights of hustlers, they call me a criminal. Aren't these people conmen?" Ruto Said.
Ruto was speaking during an empowerment programme of Likoni Boda Boda operators and small-scale businesses while in his weekend-long campaign trail of the coastal town of Mombasa in one of his trips in Mombasa.
The Deputy President and his Hustler movement traversed Jomvu, Changamwe, and Likoni Constituencies.
”We are reconstructing our economy to give rise to sustained growth by supporting small enterprises to thrive. Under the innovative, practical and revolutionary Bottom-Up Economic Development Plan, we will decriminalize these traders, reduce the tax burden and allow them to access cheap funding," the deputy president added.
The DP caravan will be in Kilifi county today for a series of campaigns and empowerment programs.
Stay tuned for more updates on Kenyan politics.
