Deputy President William Samoei Ruto has welcomed the opposition leader Raila Odinga to the hustler movement.
Ruto was responding to a Daily Newspaper which carried the headline ‘Ruto, Raila fight for the hustlers’
Through his Facebook page, Ruto says it’s only a fool that doesn’t change his mind.
“My friend Tinga, welcome to the Hustler Movement. It is said that it’s only a fool who doesn’t change his mind. The conversation here in the Hustler Nation is about the economy, not ethnicity; it is about empowerment, not power. We talk about creating jobs, not positions. We discuss how to create opportunity/wealth not merely sharing. Our focus is on citizens, not leaders. We will achieve this by changing policy not the constitution and by embracing the bottom-up and not top-down economic framework,” said the deputy president William Ruto.
Ruto has declared his interest for the presidency come 2022 bit his bid has been rubbished by the dynasties led by COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli and Jubilee Party Vice-chairman David Murathe who have termed him as corrupt and cannot be trusted with the Country’s leadership.
Ruto will be vying using the UDA party.
He is serving his second term as the deputy president of the Republic of Kenya.
“Am glad that for the first time in our history of 50 years as a nation ordinary people with their ordinary hustles; mama mbogas, boda boda operators, herders, traders, farmers, and fishermen will be at the center of our political conversation that is now about the economy,” Ruto added.
