It is two weeks now since president William Ruto launched the hustler fund that he had promised Kenyans while campaigning. Ruto's administration dispersed billions of money to start the program which has already attracted the attention of many people.
A number of people have however been left disappointed after they received a little amount of money than they expected. Ruto had said that the fund would be used to support small business owners but the money that they received is very little that it can not be used to support any business. They said that they had spent all the money on other things as it was not enough to support a business.
Narok county senator Ledama Olekina has come out to criticize the fund by saying it is a scam aimed at conning Kenyans. The senator argued that a person can not get rich using the Ksh500. He said that it is a scam like the Huduma number and it should be avoided.
"The hustler fund is a scam! You cannot get rich by borrowing 500 bob. This is another HUDUMA number scam! Please stay away!" Ledama said.
Do you agree with senator Ledama that the Hustle Fund is a scam? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
