David Ruto, the younger brother of Deputy President William Ruto has launched the Hustler Nation Movement in Kisumu County.
In a video, David conducted a fundraiser for Nyamasaria bodaboda riders in the city, which is considered to be ODM leader Raila Odinga’s backyard.
As this happened, the riders chanted songs seemingly to praise the Hustler Movement and together with other youth, he vowed to support them.
It is not every day that Ruto’s brother is covered by the media because he leads a private life. Previous reports have indicated that he and his wife reside in the US despite having a matrimonial home in Kenya.
David joins the DP’s hustler movement which is aimed at winning the support of the youth, who he empowers by donating towards their projects.
The DP says that he shares in the 2030 vision of elevating Kenya to a middle-income country by assuring their support of small business enterprises which he said steer innovation.
“We are determined to change the economic approach from the top-bottom to bottom-top so that we can improve the standards of living of the millions of the ordinary people at the base of the wealth pyramid, making Kenya a more equal and prosperous country.”
The DP’s movement has not been without hurdles as he and his allies complain of a criminal justice system that he is used against them.
Speaking in Kabarnet on Saturday, February 20, Ruto stated that it was unlawful for police officers and state agencies to wage political wars.
“These politics of using the police, and the EACC and the DCI to settle scores, when did it start? ”DP Ruto posed.
His sentiments came moments after Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika and Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri were teargassed while trying to access the venue of their campaign rally.
