DP Ruto and the Wheelbarrow Movement

Deputy President William Ruto has come to be known for his various meetings with the small business operators where he normally gives gifts of wheelbarrows, water tanks and other pieces of equipment.

He recently held a fundraiser for boda boda operators in Nyamira County where he also issued a sharp remark on the BBI proposal.

""Na nikisema hayo mimi si mwendawazimu, mimi si mjinga na mimi si mlevi, najua kile ambacho ninasema! Kuanzia hapa chini inawezekana. They should not lie to us that we should always discuss matters of positions, we can as well address issues of the ordinary person. In any case, they are the majority and they are deserving," he stated at the time.
