At his official residence in Karen Nairobi, the DP has met former Governor of the Central Bank of Kenya, Professor Njuguna Ndung'u, to discuss Ruto's proposed economic model.

According to Ruto, his government will adopt a bottoms-up approach, "The state of the global economy demands new thinking, bold ideas and fresh paradigms. We must include more Kenyans in the growth of our country. This is why we are proposing a bottom-up approach to develop the economy."

This model, he further says, will ensure development of the grassroots, expansion of the tax base and greater economic participation.

Professor Njuguna has reportedly expressed willingness to work with the Ruto administration and will work through the African Economic Research Consortium to develop the Ruto administration economic model.
