DP Ruto stated the current political heat and tension being witnessed in the country is a result of his dedication to empowering ordinary Kenyans.
DP Ruto argued that his narrative has touched the raw nerves of political leaders who have been profiting from peopleâ€™s poverty and unemployment.
He claimed that the political leaders feeling the heat of his change of tact are the same ones who sabotaged the Big Four Agenda which had promised a better future for ordinary Kenyans.
â€œThat is why the Big Four plan was sabotaged because it promised a better future for ordinary people,â€ Ruto said.
He added that instead of paying attention to the Big Four that guaranteed jobs to millions of Kenyans, the said leaders were focused on the review of the Constitution.
â€œWhen you see a leader complaining that a poor person has been given a tool of the trade like a wheelbarrow, then there is a problem,” he claimed.
He pledged to intensify his plans to empower Kenyans through the bottom-up, middle-out economic model
His sentiments come just after the Orange Democratic Party (ODM) leader Raila Odinga held a strategy meeting at Cotu boss Francis Atwoli’s home in Kilifi County.
A source who spoke to kenyagist.com, revealed that the ODM leader invited an ensemble of leaders from the coastal region for the strategy meeting on Tuesday, July 20.
