Deputy President William Ruto on Monday took his 2022 presidential campaign to Nyeri where he sold his bottom-up economic model.
The DP unveiled his county-specific deliberations which he said seek to feed into the grand plan to revolutionise Kenya’s economy.
Ruto spoke to small-medium size traders from Nyeri and asked them to keep him accountable for all his promises.
“We said we are going to change the national conversation to one centred on the people and their aspirations,” he said.
He said he will visit all the 47 counties where a broad document will be signed entailing all the issues raised.
“This way, Kenyans will go to the ballot in August to vote for deliverables.”
“The reason why we are working county by county is that we have county-specific priorities which must be captured in a county charter that will finally form a national charter.”
Leaders present in Ruto’s hustler rally included Governor Mutahi Kahiga (Nyeri), Governor Josphat Nanok (Turkana), MPs Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), Rahab Mukami (Nyeri), Faith Gitau (Nyandarua), Kimani Ichung’wah (Kikuyu), George Koimburi (Juja), Jayne Kihara (Naivasha) and Robert Gichimu (Gichugu).
Others were George Kariuki (Ndia), Benjamin Gathiru (Embakasi Central), Patrick Munene (Chuka), Isaac Mwaura (Nominated), Charles Njagua (Starehe), Gathoni Wa Muchomba (Kiambu) Gitonga Murugara (Tharaka), a host of MCAs and aspirants.
MP Gachagua said Nyeri and Mt Kenya people have unanimously agreed to support Ruto because his economic model befits their needs.
“Nyeri will elect you unconditionally,” Gachagua said.
