â€œWe will allocate government funds to push the farmer’s agenda starting next year to ensure every farmer, mama mboga and boda boda rider are catered for, every year,â€ said Ruto.
The DP also went ahead to say that his leadership, together with that of President Kenyatta, had brought major developments, and would therefore not lack funds to support hustlers.
â€œWhat’s wrong with supporting hustlers? The government allocates funds to large government corporations, why shouldnâ€™t we do the same for the hustlers? We will change the economy of Kenya by allocating funds to small businesses so that we get rid of poverty,â€ he emphasized.
Ruto further added that his government had built railways, roads and distributed electricity to more than three million homes.
â€œI know what I’m saying, my friends. I am not crazy. I am not stupid. I am not drunk, I know what Iâ€™m saying,â€ he said, as the charged crowd in Maua town, Meru County, responded with shouts.
He had earlier on officially opened the renovated Kirigara Primary School classrooms and the Kirigara Mixed Secondary School Laboratory Complex in Central Imenti.
He also launched a Multipurpose Hall and Library at the Kilalai Secondary School in Igembe South.
The DP was accompanied by Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua and Igembe South MP John Paul.
Ruto and his allies were recently on a tour of Meru county where he launched the first United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party branch office in the upcountry region.
“This will be the launchpad of his campaigns in Mt Kenya as we estimate not less than 90 percent of the residents are with him to complete the journey that we started in 2013,” one supporter said during the tour.
