Deputy President William Ruto’s supporters in western region want him to visit Homa Bay and distribute empowering equipment to the less fortunate. According to them, many youths are ready to take and operate various business activities with the equipment that Ruto has been distributing through the Team Hustler initiative. The DP has been donating various working machines to the youths to help them start and operate businesses. Some of them include wheelbarrows, handcarts, water tanks, laundry machines and assorted hairdressing equipment among others.
Youths from various places visit the DP at his Karen home in Nairobi to receive the equipment. Ruto has argued that the machines are meant to empower youths who face numerous economic challenges due to high unemployment rate in the country. So far he has visited Kisii and spearheaded a fund-drive for the less-fortunate. He has also toured Mombasa and Bungoma counties. On Wednesday, a group of DP supporters in Homa Bay asked him to visit the county.
Led by county coordinator Everest Okambo and his Rangwe constituency counterpart Vincent Ondeyo, the supporters said they are ready to welcome Ruto. “We appeal to our Deputy President to come and meet his hustler colleagues in Homa Bay. We have many hustlers who will want their challenges get addressed,” Okambo said. The last time DP visited Homa Bay was early last year when he launched the construction of Kanyadhiang –Kadel ring road in Karachuonyo constituency.” There are development projects which we will want the DP to complete once he ascends to power in 2022. We have stated them in our proposals that we expect to give him,” Okambo said.Follow us in social media:
