Hustler movement is not about the rich and the poor ; DP Ruto expands on what Hustlers is about.
Vice President William Ruto urged politicians not to misinterpret the artist’s story in order to deceive Kenyans into pursuing their own selfish interests.
He said the Hustler Nation is a movement of hardworking Kenyans focused on their economic development.
Ruto said it was unfair for leaders to reduce Kenyans’ desire to end poverty through competition between rich and poor.
“The fraudulent movement is not about the rich and the poor. A swindler is a person who works hard to raise the economy,” he said.
Speaking at a panel of applicants at his Karen residence, the DP said those in the scandalous nation would implement a low-income model to improve the lives of the poor, who are the majority of Kenyans.
“We will change the lives of ordinary citizens by implementing a lower economic system and eliminating the one that benefits the few,” Ruto said.
There were deputies Silvanus Osoro (South Mugirango), Joash Nyamoko (Mugirango North), Shadrack Mose (Kitutu Masaba), Vincent Kemosi (West Mugirango), Mathias Robi (West Kirango), Millicent Omanga (nominee), Dan Wanyama (Webuye West), Didmus Barasa (Kimilili), Benjamin Washiali (East Mumias) John Waluke (Sirisia) and Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi.
UDA President Johnson Muthama and the Secretary-General also attended.
Ruto noted that the success of the Jubilee administration was due to changes in presentation models, saying the lower model would work as well.
“When we changed the models used in road construction and electricity connections, we greatly increased the paved roads and the number of Kenyans connected to electricity,” he said.
He said unemployment was the biggest challenge facing the country strategically.
He said the Hustler Nation government would invest in projects and programs that would create jobs and reduce unemployment.
“The housing program, which was part of the Big Four agenda that has been scrapped by rivals, is said to have created 2 million jobs so far,” the DP said.
He said the UDA sub-approach was accepted by Kenyans as it focused on their immediate challenges.
“Today, every referendum lists UDA as the most popular political party in the country,” said Ruto.
The vice president said the party has the most popular presidential candidate and is close to forming the next government.
He urged Parliament not to use university degrees to block politicians vying for elected seats.
“It cannot be that the qualifications of members of the county assembly (MCA) are the same as those of the president,” Ruto said.
Muthama said UDA is a national political party that will welcome all Kenyans.
“When I was at NASA, we used regional and ethnic parties to contest the presidency, we lost twice. UDA is the party of all Kenyans who will form the next government,” he said.
Maina urged candidates to encourage their unregistered supporters to participate in the mass voter registration exercise.
