Ruto says 2022 is between Hustler Nation and System project ”Capital News
He said the race would run between the Hustler Nation and the system project with apparent reference to Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Raila Odinga which enjoys the backing of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
This will pit proponents of the bottom-up economic development model that seeks to create jobs and expand businesses, he said, against supporters of the distribution mentality fallout plan.
“Kenyans will make a decision between the two; empowerment of the poor and the power of a few individuals, ”he said.
Ruto spoke at his Karen residence on Thursday when he hosted religious leaders, opinion makers and small-scale businessmen from Githurai.
He explained that it was unfortunate that the leaders were still talking about donations and allowances to poor and unemployed Kenyans.
“This kind of program is an insult to our country. Kenyans are creative and would love to have opportunities to work and do business, ”he said.
The Vice President noted that he was determined to change Kenya’s politics from one of hatred, division and ethnicity to one that unites and transforms the country.
He said the Hustler Nation will combine the now abandoned Big Four agenda and the revolutionary bottom-up economic development plan to change Kenya for a better.
Leaders present at the meeting included Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok, Katoo Ole Metito (South Kajiado), George Kariuki (Ndia), Nixon Korir (Lang’ata), Gladys Shollei (Uasin Gishu), Aden Duale (Garissa Town) and Patrick Munene (Chuka / Igambang’ombe).
Others were Halima Mucheke (nominated), Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet), Falhada Iman (nominated), Moses Kirima (Central Imenti), Kimani Ichung’wah (Kikuyu) and Isaac Mwaura (nominated).
Mr Ichung’wah urged Kenyans to join the Hustler nation which promises a bright future for all Kenyans.
“It provides opportunities for everyone, fairly,” he said.
Mwaura said that only through the bottom-up economic development model will Kenyans break free from the slavery of poverty.
“It creates jobs and gives businesses the opportunity to prosper. We cannot run our economy on handouts as is propagated by some leaders, ”he said.
