Presidential hopefuls in the 2022 polls Deputy president William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga toured different parts of the country over the weekend.
They were selling their manifesto in the hunt for votes ahead of the 2022 polls.
One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principals Gideon Moi (Kanu), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya) rested apart from their counterpart Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), who was in Kisii county.
The strong candidates were at the grassroots engaging the locals in markets, rallies, burials and other places.
Ruto said that Kenyans can only change the destiny of the country by working together and having a clear, inclusive and deliberate plan that will transform the lives of millions of less fortunate Kenyans.
“We are reconstructing our economy to give rise to sustained growth by supporting small enterprises to thrive,” Ruto said on Saturday in Kilifi at the Coast.
“Under the innovative, practical and revolutionary Bottom-Up Economic Development Plan, we will decriminalise these traders, reduce the tax burden and allow them to access cheap funding.”
Raila was in Isiolo and other eastern parts of the country, where he insisted that every Kenyan must be part of the transitional government if he wins.
“Vijanaa tuchukueni kura tufunge hii story next year,” Raila said.
Musalia asked President Uhuru to lift the curfew.
“I call upon President Uhuru Kenyatta to lift the curfew that is aggravating the economic hardships faced by Kenyans under Covid-19,” he said.
“The prevalence rate has gone down. Kenyans should, however, continue observing Ministry of Health safety protocols.”
