Deputy President William Ruto yesterday Wednesday held two Mount Kenya meetings in the hunt for the region’s votes.
The DP assured the Kirinyaga and Murang’a leaders that his government will ensure unity, good leadership and respect to the rule of law.
Ruto also promised them that the Bottom-Up Economic Model will calibrate Kenya’s policies to enhance the productivity and competitiveness of small businesses.
He said that the model will create opportunities for millions of enterprising Kenyans at lower cadres to make a living and thrive.
“The Bottom-Up Economic Model is deliberately and purposefully designed to calibrate our country’s policies to enhance productivity and competitiveness of small businesses, creating opportunities for millions of enterprising Kenyans at lower cadre to make a living and thrive,” Ruto said.
The DP welcomed former Gichugu MP Njogu Barua and supporters to the United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
“We salute the church and religious leaders for their partnership with the State in the provision of social services such as health and education in our country,” Ruto said.
“We will keep engaging and deepening this friendship to better the lives of millions of underprivileged Kenyans.”
During a meeting with faith leaders from Murang’a County at the Karen Residence, Nairobi. MPs Alice Wahome (Kandara), Irungu Kang’ata (Murang’a), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira) and Benjamin Tayari (Kinango) were also present.
