Deputy President William Ruto continued to popularize his bottom-up economy on the sixth day in the Coast region.
The Dp said the economic model will change the lives of the poor if he is elected in the 2022 polls.
“Under our radical plans to refashion and rearrange our economy, we have taken a deliberate focus on supporting high-growth potential small-scale enterprises to maximise their abilities,” Ruto said.
“This will create jobs and generate wealth for millions of Kenyans, hence tackle poverty from the bottom of the wealth pyramid.”
He added that he was keen on working with partners to support small-scale traders from cooperative societies to broaden their access to finances and business expertise. He said this will promote their growth and enhance their productivity.
“We are freeing millions of the less privileged Kenyans from the yoke of poverty by completely reconfiguring our country’s economy to centre more on the base of the wealth pyramid. This sustainable, inclusive and broad radical plan will expand enterprises, and generate more jobs and incomes,” he said
Ruto was accompanied by Kwale Deputy Governor Fatuma Achani and former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar in Lamu, Kwale, Mombasa, Taita Taveta and Tana River Counties. Others included MPs Aisha Jumwa, Lydia Haika, Peter Katana, Owen Baya, Khatib Mwashetani, Benjamin Tayari and Mohammed Ali.
